The prayers worked.
Dr.William Taylor Hill Jones did the best IV with just ONE stick and the perfect cocktail of drugs so that I wasn’t even the least bit nauseous. Dr. Werner Brooks must be pretty good at shoulders too as the post-op pain is not as bad as I mentally prepared for it to be after reading other blogs. I won’t know for a few months on how my shoulder is really doing but I like him and so far I’m pleased with my surgery. I still forgot to tell him about all the people I know who are also happy with his surgical skills.
Dr. Brooks said everything went well and I should have 100% use of my shoulder. Today is one week and even though I know surgery would make it hurt worse for a bit it’s a little discouraging when the ache is larger than it was and the when a sharp pain hits they still stab me in the same places. I know how my back knots up… and it has but the muscle spasms all along my arm, back and neck were quite the surprise.
