Oh gosh! What did I do now? All I did was unfasten my bra and my shoulder is killing me. I was not wearing one yesterday that fastens in the front. I have to since surgery put and takeoff the bra backwards if I wear a conventional bra. It is a pain and the neck to so because you have to hook it up in the front and then twist it around to the back and then put the straps up.
Well now it is a pain in my shoulder because I did not do that. Hope I did not rip anything, hope my internal stitches would have dissolved by now as it is almost 7 weeks since surgery. Couldn't sleep because I couldn't find a comfortable position to put my arm and shoulder in. Looking forward to the day when I can just lie down normal without having to worry how my shoulder is lined up and where I have to prop up my pillow to do so. I shouldn't complain about that though because most people that have had rotator surgery have to sleep in a recliner for a couple of months. I slept in a bed from day one.
My walk this morning was even painful. Guess I should have worn the sling for support because after 5 minutes or so it was aching. I had to cradle my arm to take pressure off the shoulder for the rest of my walk. Good thing it was early this morning (before 6 AM) so no one saw me. Looking forward to physical therapy and having her just tell me it was a stupid move on my part and that I just over stretched it - again. Do I ever learn? NO! I always push the envelope before I am given permission to move that way.
