Yes, paperwork helps, but some of us need more hands on. I read and re-read everything and still when Im in so much pain, I think what did it say about this or that? :/

Everyone’s pain is different. A neighbor asked me this morning how was I doing. I replied “upright and functioning”. Every day when I wake up is a good day. I have been through a lot in my life and I am grateful. I had no real expectations after surgery. Perhaps that’s the reason I am doing ok even after 5 months. I have two middle aged daughters who when they got a text from me after the surgery they both texted back “you’re alive”. Yup. I felt exactly the same way.

Good morning (at least I hope your mornings are improving). Many surgeons have either a PA or care coordinator who can answer questions for you that do not require a visit to the surgeon. He is primarily only concerned about infection or other complications, but they are there to do the "hands on" advising you hope for. Have you called their office to ask for this help?
