This is a great community. Consider joining.

Hi folks, I finally was able to get my right shoulder rotator cuff repaired today. No pain right now due to  nerve block but I know it's coming. My son is here to help for three days. This one was a little rough. My 02 sats dropped and I had to get some 02 added until I could get up to walk then the sats settled down. So I have 6 to 8 weeks of healing and PT.  Hope you are all well!

These are the top 5 issues ostomates face:

1. Dating and relationships
2. Concealing the pouch
3. Foods to eat and avoid
4. Losing or gaining weight
5. Pouch ballooning

Freedancer mine rotator cuff was injured in an auto accident years ago. I was seeing a workers comp doctor for my injuries. He was busy pretending that I wasn't hurt so he never told me that it was something that could've been repaired.

It's probably not too late but the thought of another surgery gives me a headache. Lol

Get well soon!

Hi Free,

  Must be good to finally have that fixed!  You're like the third person I've talked to this week that had that done.  Must be national rotator cuff repair week or something!  Glad to hear it all went well.  Yeah, those nerve blocks are something one at the dentist the other day and was talking like a moron for at least 24 hours. comments from the peanut gallery about that!!  

  Good to hear you're doing well!!

Nice to hear from you. I am surviving my first night. I will be sleeping in the recliner for a couple of days. I haven't had much pain yet but typing on the internet with one hand albeit the non-dominate hand.  Hope you are doing well! 😊

Hi Freedancer! 
So glad you finally was able to get that done! Not a fun thing to go through but it is over now! Well all but the healing but that is progress. Hope you have a speedy recovery and don't try to do too much! Rest and enjoy being pampered by your son for a few days!
