Hello everyone,

I’m at home now recovering from my shoulder replacement surgery. I’m on the other side recovering now. I woke up from surgery not feeling any pain. The nerve block worked on the first day of surgery and wore off by the second night. The ice machine is wonderful. Oxycodone worked great for my pain the first couple of days and now I’m taking Ibuprofen as needed.

Thank you, Jaycey! I’m recovering one day at a time. So far I haven’t taken any pain meds since last Thursday. I use the ice machine throughout the day with a cloth in between my shoulder and the cooling pad.

Hi @Chatty63 , Welcome to recovery.

I'm glad things are going well so far.

I've moved some of your posts from your pre-op thread, to start your recovery thread.

Please will you continue to update us about your progress on this thread from now on? Thank you. :flwrysmile:

Thank you for posting Chatty!
I can't find your pre-op thread, in order to follow your story to see if it can provide me some instruction.
I have post surgery arthritis in left shoulder from multiple dislocations and am trying to make all the right choices.

@Health2Boys Please start your own thread in the pre-op area. That way we can more fully answer your questions and give you the info you need.

@Chatty63 - how are things going? It's been several weeks since your surgery. Is recovery going well?
