I saw my surgeon today and he is blown away with how much range of motion I have am an A+ patient. But unfortunately Dr. Eric saw my shadow and I have 6 more weeks of physical therapy. I guess that's not all that bad, I really like my two physical therapist and I do enjoy pt. I need to really work on my flexibility of reaching my arm behind my back, like unhooking your bra strap. I can also take my brace off when I'm at home, but its more comfortable to sleep with it on.I see the doc again in 6 weeks.
So on Monday I asked my physical therapist how long I would be in pain? She laughed out loud which made me laugh. I said, that wasn't suppose to make you laugh, she is so sweet and we both have a really good sense of humor. But she said that the pain can last from 8 to 10 months.....ugh.....most of my pain comes from the screws that were drilled into the bone.
Oh and I'm now determined to sew a day sling and then sleep in the ugly black sling/brace.
The rest of these pictures are from the fun we are having.
