Jake, thanks for reply. I fell this past Sunday and went directly to ER and they tried to reposition my left arm while I was on morphine drip and awake but they had no luck. Then they put me under and it was wonderful to wake up with it all done in 5 minutes. But now the pain in arm and a day later the pain in ribs. Wed I got in to see Orthropedic specialiist who took more xrays and said no fractures but I need to stay in sling 24/7 for 3 more weeks before reevaluation. I was only getting about 3-4 hours sleep in bed but they suggested I try recliner and I did get a few more hours of sleep last night. I'm 76 and had no idea this could happen and hope it never does again.
