Recovery week 8

Happy Sabbath/Saturday (this is a short post) I swear this is taking way longer than I anticipated. My doctor did explain that even if I had the same name surgeries done, the healing and recovery time can be very very different, but geezzee Louise it’s annoying. Anyway, pain has felt a lot better in fact no real shoulder pain but the tightness in my muscles and rebuilding my muscles is a long process, who would of known that it takes forever to strengthen muscles. Don’t throw numbers at me like 9, 12 even 2 years for recovery. I just want to be able to put my hair in a bun. Sigh! not saying that to discourage anyone but it’s just a mare feeling at this moment. Lots of strengthening exercises all with the elastic band. I remain as this too shall pass. Pain is temporary, unless you are me and been in pain pretty-much for four years without relief. In my last recovery post I stated I started taking some natural oil to help with the pain and this has helped me tremendously with working a few days the first week of school.

It took a while to post this because of my hip pain, which will be the next surgery and recovery blog series in a few months. If you’re like me you have several written post in drafts that haven’t been posted for one reason or the other. (mine is pain).
