That was a huge, major surgery. Take it slowly, take your pain meds, get out in this wonderful weather, put a warm cat on your lap and call me in the morning. No seriously, I hope healing is extra quick for you but please don't over do yet. Give yourself some time.

Glad to hear that, A tiny bit of exercise is great but wow, you barely got out of the hospital and back home. So good that you are taking care of yourself and not over doing. Loved the video of Dr Reister, very fun socks and bright vest too. Snazzy dresser!

I have been using the ice machine (cleverly called The Cold Rush), more because I was afraid of what pain I would feel if I did not. Last night about 12:30am, I turned it off and did not take any pain meds since 8:45. I did not get up at all. Mostly because Cassi was so dang cute stretched out across me. And yes, I am keeping my incision covered and she is not allowed any access to the left side of me. I got up at 6:30, a little stiff, but little pain also. I am keeping my arm protected. I have 9 more days before staples come out and yes I am counting. The two under my armpit are uncomfortable.
The goal today (5 days post surgery) is to see how long I can go without taking pain meds.

I just noticed this old thread on the home page and saw you went thru a second shoulder surgery. I definitely feel your pain. Left shoulder 6 years ago, took 19 months to heal. Just did the right one May 1. Now I've hit the same plateau with PT as I did with the first shoulder. Looking at a 2nd surgery on this one, too.

Not nearly as serious as what you went thru. But between the shoulders and the back I seem to have a standing reservation on the MRI machine.

And I hate the itching from opioids, too. I tried Tramadol but it kept me awake. So, now, I just go without pain meds other than Tylenol or Advil.

I sincerely hope you recover soon and completely. And I keep telling myself at least I don't have 3 shoulders.

I tried to go without pain meds today. I was miserable. I took one at 11am after 9 1/2 hours and another just now at 4:30 after 5 1/2 hours. I took it very easy today.

Have they started you doing physical therapy yet? You haven't mentioned it which got me curious! I know things change, but when I had my shoulders done they had me doing physical therapy from Day One! If you are not doing any exercises yet, when do you start? And will you be using Home Health Care for your PT?

Angela, when I am weaning myself off of pain meds I tend to alternate between painkillers and Asprin, Tylenol, Advil....whatever works for you. But after my car accident I found this wonderful stuff you can buy on Amazon called Formula 303 https://www.amazon.com/Formula-Maximum-Strength-Natural-Relaxant/dp/B0016KX9SI/ref=sr_1_2?hvadid=77721781660535&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvqmt=e&keywords=formula+404&qid=1568597045&sr=8-2
