You might want to look at your celebrex as well. I don't know what your dosage is, but you might want to talk about upping the dosage instead of combining two different medications. I also found that dividing the dose morning and evening gave me better coverage-no miserable dip in the later part of the day.

What surgery are you having done? There are a couple of people who are having thumb surgery this week and I will be having it on the 20th. Perhaps we can band together for support. When I had my partial knee in February there were two other women with the same surgery at the same time and we shared the good and bad as the days went on during recovery.

Good luck on your surgery. I will pray for you.


Thank you Margarita!
I am having thumb basal joint fusion surgery on my left hand. I am not looking forward to it at all! It would be great to band together. This site has already helped me out so much. Thank you for your support!
