I'm glad you mentioned this. I suffered the same "confusion" after both THRs. I don't see many members mention this but I guess it must be a side effect of all the trauma. The good news is that this goes away fairly quickly.I seem to be more easily confused since surgery.
I have caught up with all my podcasts and don't seem to have the attention span to read which makes me sad as I am an addictive reader.
I like movies that are silly lately and I seem to want to watch TV shows that are the same. I have been watching Superstore on Hulu and I find it is lighthearted. Good to hear that the attention and reading is not so uncommon to be worried about. I never thought about a pain management doctor, I am going to keep it in mind. Thanks and Godspeed!I'm sorry you're having trouble getting the pain meds you need. My extended family is all in Albany and my sister has told me about that problem. I am very fortunate that I've been working with a pain specialist here in VA and she will help me if I need it. If you continue to have trouble with management, would your insurance cover a specialist like that? Just a thought.
I'm normally a reader but I learned after a surgery last year that I couldn't focus enough to read. I watched a lot of MASH! Talk about a show that did not wear well against the social change of the world. It was funny and comfortable when I was drugged and vague, but once I got smart again, I was kind of horrified by what used to be funny. lol
What kind of shows or movies do you normally like? I know everyone here has a favorite. lol. I think I'm planning to start with re-watching my favorite Stargate SG1 show, when it won't matter if I can't focus.
