I now understand what they mean when they say the cure is 10 times worse than the original problem.
It's called a rotator cuff repair and it ain't for sissies, believe me.
Today is post-op day 5 and I am finally down to 4 Percocets a day [as opposed to 8] and I didn't nap once!!! Mark that one down in your calendars.
I admit my mobility is much improved over what it was Friday night [immediately after surgery] which was NONE, it's still not great.
The pain is now only when I move so that's an improvement, a big improvement.
I think I might live.
