Awww, you are so sweet. Will you share why you need a revision? I am shaking my head at your story. It does create depression. I may give this another week or so and ask my gp for an antidepressant. I’m crying a lot and life just is no fun. I am going for my first aquatic exercise hour on Thursday, though. I hope that may bring me some giggles.
So far my docs have not denied pain meds. I looked up tramadol and it is classified as an opioid. It does not really stop the pain, you are right. Sometimes I just need something to calm me down and make me a little. This is a sad way to live. But it’s not cancer. My dearest cousin and a close friend are struggling with that. Now, there is something to struggle with.
Hi folks, I’ve been off the board for a few weeks. I was scheduled yesterday for arthroscopy to remove scar tissue after May 17th left tkr. Yesterday was a Monday. The Friday before, my surgery was cancelled after a conflicting consult. I was devastated. I have no flexion, burning pain, and just a ruined existence. It has been incredibly difficult to accept that every 2 weeks I must return to these physicians who, it feels like, sentence me to days and nights of torture. I know I sound overly dramatic. I realize that I don’t have cancer. I can drive short distances, do small grocery trips, bathe myself, do my own laundry.
I think the rationale is that at 4 months post op I still have inflammation. Inflammation means more scar tissue will regrow if it is aggravated by surgery. I take tramadol, about 2 a day, if I get to a place of desperation. It seems to not do much. I take a few Tylenol, like maybe 6 per day. Someone suggested bromelain, but I can’t tolerate too many. It upsets my stomach. Waiting is a difficult job. Waiting in pain is exhausting. Does anyone have a ‘magic mix’ of supplement and otc?
This morning, 12 days until my arthroscopic surgery, I don’t have the stamina or fight that you have. I thank you, sincerely, for sharing it. I know what I need to do, but right now, in pain, I don’t have a fight in me. For every strong person like you there are multiple people like me. I will reread your post often. Blessings, k
