Waiting for surgery: How to manage the pain while I wait?

Posted by lilypaws @lilypaws, May 5 8:01am

Since the Covid-19 I have to wait for Mayo Clinic to open up for elective surgeries. I have a lot of pain. I know I have sent the reason why before. Just can hardly wait I have so much pain.

@lilypaws Ah thanks lilypaws . Im thinking of you also and hope your test go alright in the outcome. Monday will be the start of them Now since you said you have test on 17,18,and19 are these all in one place or do you have to travel to get them all done? Why cant they do them all the same day . Well whatever the reason you have to travel to other places Im guessing be safe in the process. You are on my prayer change which is in USA ,Peru and Belgium. So take care for now and keep posting when you can Best to you always.

Hi @lilypaws, I noticed that you have started posting again since your surgery earlier this month. Welcome back!

How are you doing? What does the timeline for recovery look like? Are you back home now?

Need back surgery. Live with pain. Pray I can stand it no surgery.
Does anyone have severe pain while sitting on the toilet seat? I have a padded seat which broke because it was only plastic fasteners. First it was wobbly, hard to sit on, slid around. Yesterday it broke completely at the plastic hinges. I nearly went on the floor. Seats didn't used to have plastic fasteners, at least I don't think they did. Woogie

@woogie, you'll notice that I moved your message to this discussion about waiting for back surgery. Like you, @lilypaws asked how to deal with the pain while waiting for surgery. I'm glad you didn't fall when the fasteners of the toilet seat broke.

Do you have a date for surgery?
