Discussions that mention tylenol

Open to All Other Health Topics board

I fell yesterday and factured my left humerus (ball of the shoulder). Has anyone else done this? What did they do for you and how long did it take to heal? I am a 51 year old female with osteopenia. They put me in a sling and gave me Tylenol #3 every 4 hours. Also ice packs every 5-6 hours. Every little movement is extremely painful and the pills barely take the edge off the pain. I cannot get in to see and Orthopedic Dr. until next Tues. Any help or suggestions will be very much appreciated.
