    On the 19th of April I have an appointment with my Orthopedic specialist to finally set a tentative date for my shoulder replacement operation..
    hopefully it will be done AS SOON AS POSSIBLE..
    Generally he books about 2 to 3 weeks down the road because of the pre-op procedure that must be done..
    Looks like early to mid May....

    I just received a call from the hospital in Sault Ste. Marie that on the 18th of April, I have an appointment with a heart specialist to OK the operation..
    I will be undergoing some tests to make sure my heart can take it..
    That means we will be out of town (there) from Monday (early morning) the 17th to Wednesday the 19th, returning late at night on the 19th..
    I will let you know when the next out of town visit will be.. Hopefully very soon as the pain has now gotten to the level of almost unbearable ....
    If it were not for those very powerful pain killers, (Oxycodone),I don't know what I would do...

    Okay, back home now and time to get ready for the upcoming event, my surgery. Steve and I will have on-going stories! I do know eating well does help recovery.

    I will call my surgeons office on Monday to make sure insurance is already to go, make sure I am getting all the right tests from my internist and make an appt to go in and talk about EXACTLY what he is going to do and what to expect after. I have an idea but want to hear it from him.

    I loved my time in Hawaii, but am very glad I am home! And I ended up with what I think is a sun rash!!! Oh well....

    Arlene.....
    Will your surgery be done in the same city as you live in ??

    Mine will be done in Sault Ste. Marie which is about a 3 hour drive west from Massey....
    Naturally my Princess will be with me at all times and will have to drive me back home after the operation, back to Sault Ste. Marie after 6 weeks for the check-up, back home, and back to Sault Ste. Marie for the following check-up (3 months later) and home..
    Now, as of the 2nd week, the staples will be coming out (here in Massey) and from then on I will be going to physiotherapy at the hospital in Espanola twice a week for about 6 months.. Espanola is a 35 minute drive from our house.. That is where we do our food shopping every week.. We will try to combine the food shopping on the same day as my physio to avoid a third trip into Espanola.. My physio should be on Tuesdays and Fridays and be for about 90 minutes each time..
    I used to live to eat......... Now I eat to live.....

    sorry you guys are having to plan the med procedures!

    but when done you will feel better for sure and like Arlene said, healthy correct eating will help recovery!


    med stuff tho can be frustrating to say the least to just get it all scheduled and handled LOL

    hold strong everyone, you will come thru fine!!

    Thank you Zero. Yes, aventually all will be well.

    Steve, yes. All my procedures are happening within 15 miles. Hospital is in next city but that is only 15 miles from here. this surgeon does not come out to our branch of the hospital. Any PT will be done closer to home.

    I have friends who go out of town for knees or other surgeries but my docs are all here.
