Posts Tagged ‘surgery’

There have been very few wheelchair adventures recently because of my shoulder injury…and adventures to me are when I participate in the propelling rather than being pushed around (which I am never happy about)!
Monday, and my surgery date arrived…mixed feelings of relief to have it over with and nervousness about being even more incapacitated.
Tuesday, and back home in my own bed, drugged up to the eyeballs and the nerve blocker still keeping me reasonably comfortable. Not wasting any time, I begin the exercises given me by the physiotherapist. You do need to have a fair bit of determination to start doing exercises this soon after surgery but I know how important it is for my recovery and I’m determined to do this right.
Wednesday, and the nerve block has worn off and I have removed the sling. Now you need even more determination to do those exercises, but the regular drug regime is helping.
Thursday, and the Physio exercises are coming along nicely. Drugs make me feel weird and my brain is rather fuzzy but I’m determined to do a bit more and I’ve just discovered crochet may be a good next exercise. Being right-handed helps as I can hold my work in my left hand and work away very nicely with my uninjured arm …. so that’s my therapy for today…. make some more dishcloths….
