Hi All -
 
It's been three and a half months since my op! Can't believe it, and am so thankful I did it. I am so almost normal in the what I can eat sense again.
 
Well, it's the festive season - so I kinda overdid it today and a few times. When I overdo it, I get that bad shoulder pain in the left shoulder. Is that normal at this stage? I'm thinking, it's either the fatty food or the gassy drinks. Anyone have this or any idea which?
 
Also, I have not returned to gym since the op. Is it safe to assume my wrap is now settled into place, and won't easily slide if I do some exercises? I'm just afraid that if I do do some running the constant bouncing motion will let it slip down again. Or is that silly. Ie, is the wrap secure in it's place at this stage?
 
Otherwise, I hope it's going well with you guys and that you all find some comfort if not relief over this festive period.
 
Take it easy on yourselves.
 
Darryl

Hi Darryl,
I honestly can't remember when the shoulder pain subsided completely, but it takes quite a while.  It's an indication of irritation, so it is probably due to some overdoing it. 
 
Cindy 123 is 11 months post op, and when she has irritation she still gets some shoulder pain.  Probably not as severe as what you have in the first few months.  Honestly, the healing of this surgery goes on to at least a year.  I found I still had some glitches resolve into the second year post op.
 
I'm sure you could try walking or jogging on the treadmill at this point.  I believe most surgeons tell you to listen to your body, and stop when something hurts.  If you're lifting weight, that is a different story, and you should check with your surgeon.
 
I'm sure the wrap is pretty secure at this point in your recovery.  Still don't do anything foolish, like lift heavy weight.
 
Enjoy the holiday season!
Have a lekker day! turn
Denise
