Crap Marcia if anything becomes more of a mess I am getting into bed & staying there.
I have deleted my orginal post to redo, I have not had my pain meds since 6:30 am & it is 4:30, Had one left & saving it for morning. NO Way!
OMG, I am in big trouble with out taking the meds I realized how bad this is, my other shoulder is really hurting, both & my chest & ribs are going crazy. Called the office back this morning & at first they said I could get script tommorrow, then they had the assisstant call me back about what the osteo said, girl I can barely remember what I said to her, sobbing in pain. She said she was asking the surgeon there to see if he would give me a script & would call me right back, mind you this is at 4:10, office closes at 5:00, mean while my husband left work to be there in time (hopefully) to pick it up in case they gave me one, well 4:30 she called back to say he would give me enough till friday & then I would have to go through the surgeon. She asked could I get there to get it & I told her no way but my husband was going to try. The only good thing to come out of this day from h*** is she said I am in to much pain & she does not blame me for wanting to get into PM, she said she could tell just by speaking to me how much pain I was in. God, I did not even realize how bad it was. That other shoulder is bad, I never realized how bad till I did not take the meds, the post op side hurts all the way down the arm. I am scared,more now then ever. I did tell the assistant that they said it is myofascial damage, her reaction surprised me, she said oh my god, you have to have something for that pain. Does she know how bad it can get I wonder?
I know my husband will probably say something. I told her I had no way of knowing the surgeon would not be in. At least she got some where, I am not even kidding I could barely talk, soon as I got off the phone I took the last perc. I was saving for morning. NO way could I make it in the morning with out something,it would have been worse. Norco, skelaxin & motrin & my pain level was just going up, it was about an 8 when she called it would have easily became a 10 in no time. God you don't even realize how bad you are till you have no relief. NO way am I letting this go for any length of time, I think I told her that the surgeon needs to let me now about PM, heck I can't even remember.
My husband just called to say he broke every traffic rule to get there & just made it to get the script. Thank god!
Well this is just made me realize how bad I am & that other shoulder has issues, crap the surgeon wont touch it because I don't have full use of the left one yet. If this does not get me into pm nothing will, & I am going to say prayers no stop to get into a good pm. I am also going to make sure I try to get the surgeon to help me chosse a good fit. After everything I have been through I want a PM doc. that is at least understanding. I know the surgeon has been good to me & trust me I do appreciate it, but enough. I also know I got real lucky with the osteo after 3 visits realizing I need PM & offering to help me get in. I count my blessings but today was a wake up call for me.
Thank you Marcia for just being you!
Let me know how your shoulder is doing, are you having problems with the other shoulder at all? I am most defianantly a freak like you. At least I am in the best of company my friend. Sammy
