Hi there I'm back, day four post-op I'm finally feeling up to looking at the computer. I did have a complication prior to surgery they did the nerve block and it blocked my diaphragm as well as my shoulder so I literally could not breathe.when they laid me down on the table in the operating room I could not move air in and out of my lungs it was really scary. Has this ever happened to anyone else? They finally got my breathing so they could put me under and do the surgery but for two days after surgery I couldn't breathe very well it was scary. So I kind of consider myself two days behind because I didn't really move a lot because I couldn't breathe. As long as I keep up with my pain meds the pain is tolerable. My doctor wanted me out of my sling on day 3 that's not happening it hurts too much. PT was supposed to start yesterday that didn't happen either. I don't know if I'm just being a big baby or what. But at least I'm on the other side. Sorry for any typos I'm talking into my phone and I really am not doing a great job of it.
