I went to a new Ortho doc today, and I really liked the entire clinic. I am going to another doc there that specializes in shoulder and surgery's "gone wrong" so to speak.
The doctor I talk to today said "you might just be looking at a complete relacement of the shoulder. but I'll let the other doc answer that". Thank kind of took me by surprise.
I did leave to day with a bit of hope, that I got NONE from at the place where my original surgery was done.
And even without me asking we wrote a script of Hydrocodone 10/325 and Flexeril.
So I"m going back on Tuesday and I really hope to get some good news!!

Hi AngMichelle,

I'm so glad you found a great clinic! Don't you just LOVE it when there is someone out there who understands your pain and "gets it"? I know it makes a great deal of difference in how you feel about your care...and to have someone actually prescribe pain meds/muscle relaxers without having to jump through hoops is amazing. I don't say that lightly because I really mean it. It is almost impossible to find a good PM these days! A GREAT surgeon...willing to take on someone else's almost unheard of. You are blessed!

I wish you luck on your new procedure. Depending on what the Dr tells you, surgery seems likely and I do so hate surgery pain, but I know it can be amazing if done the right way.

Good luck!
