    It went very well, driving on city streets and glad I had my collar. I went to breakfast with my girlfriends this morning, freeway driving and all went well!

    Going in for my first post-op Dr visit this morning. Will be interesting to hear what he says.

    Yesterday the doctor said I am at the top of the class, my pain control and movement is excellent. He said most people are still hunched over and not bending heads back to look at the sky. I am basically pain free, just very stiff (in fairness, I can imagine some being on pain pills for this but I hate the way they make me feel), and almost have all my movement back. I go back in four weeks and he said then I could be lifting 8 pounds +. I asked him if I would be able to ride roller coasters again, and after he laughed he said in six months! LOL


    Steve, when you you go again?

    On the 30th and 31st of May we will be in Sault Ste. Marie for 3 reasons to see out Orthopedic specialist..
    First is for the annual check-up and X-Ray for Annmarie's knee replacement that is so good, she forgets she ever had a replacement..
    Next is for Annmarie's foot that is still very sore and she just can't walk on it.. She had a cat scan done..
    Last is for the final meeting with the doctor for me to get informed what he will be doing for my shoulder and instructions for before the operation such as when to stop certain pills, hospital stay, what to expect after surgery, when to start physio, etc.....

    I am scheduled for the operation on June 27th (which is a Tuesday) in Sault Ste. Marie.. Probably stay in hospital for 4 days after surgery.. The staples will be in for 2 weeks and will be removed here at the medical clinic in Massey.. Physio should start the following few days which will be twice a week for about 6 or so months.. I already spoke to the physiotherapist (who I know) that I will be seeing her soon, sometime in mid July.. Seeing that this is my 4th replacement, she told me to find another hobby..... LOL....
    The physio will be in Espanola which is about a 45 minuet drive from our house.. Twice a week will be a chore but it has to be done.. From mid July to Christmas, twice a week to Espanola will mean lots of miles on my poor little Pumpkin (Chev. Sonic) ... Good thing it is excellent on gas and we don't have many miles on it ..

    Naturally I will keep you informed on what is going on, but after surgery, I will not be able to type on here for about a few weeks, at least..

    Okay Steve, I put your surgery date on my calendar. It is nice to be able to get all your appts done at once. Gosh, having a foor that is hurting is not good for Annmarie to have to worry about when you are undergoing your surgery as well. I do hope they find out what is going on with it.

    Yes, Steve, been there. The worst is stopping any pain control two weeks before surgery = the LONGEST two weeks! Ice is my best freind in times like that.
