Surgery was a nightmare. I had a nerve block instead of general anesthesia. All I remember for two days is a wall of pain. They sent me home an hour after, w/the pain completely uncontrolled.

Things are slightly better now - just as I'm running out of the good drugs & have to switch to a lower dose.

OMG, Analisa! - that is just awful and SO WRONG. I am so sorry.

Praying that you are on the mend very soon.

I hope the pain lessens as you move to the lower dose. You've really been through the mill. If you're facing a wall of pain again, please do call your doctor and get some more help. Here's to a quick recovery!

Oh, sweetie....I just cannot believe that they would treat you this way! Can you see another doc for pain management?

Oh, man. I was hoping you'd have something by now.

You know, this may be completely impossible, but when DH had shingles last winter, his doctor offered a shot in the shoulder that he said would numb the nerve all the way down the arm for a short while. I wonder whether something like that is available and might be safe in pregnancy because it's just a local anesthetic.

Wish there were more we could do. How long is your sister going to stay?

Whether or not there's a possibility of more pain relief (and I hope there is), your baby is one lucky kiddo! You're going through an awful lot just to be careful for his or her sake, and that's such a loving act on your part.

Wishing you lots of healing and much less pain....

Thank you, Sweetie, and thank you for the card. My therapy is progressing nicely and the therapist is impressed.

Thank you, E. I turned 32 on Saturday. My arm is much better. I'm way down on pain meds and making great progress in rehab!
