Well I am home and the surgery is all done. They went in and cleaned up the torn tendon. Thet had to shave off a bunch of ragged edged. And the found a bunch of spurs on the rotator cuff. Which they had to remove. The doctor said that my shoulder look like one of a 80 year old womans who had been doing really heavy lifting all of her life for a living. The put a nerve block on it right after surgery to help control the pain. It wore off at about 11 last night.And boy I sure could tell when it had worn off. And now I am fight with the doctors office trying to get someting strong enough to even take the edge off of the pain. The pain med he perscribed is like taking a baby asprin. The doctor doesn't want me to wait the 6 weeks to go to physical theraphy. I have to start it this Friday. He is afraid the shoulder joint will freeze up again. But if he thinks I am going to go to theraphy this soon after surgery with out something for the pain he has another thing coming!!! I will try to post more later. This has taken me a hour just to type this much TEE HEE! Miss Lefty Me!!!
