I wanted to check this out about "pain". I had a pretty difficult time, tolerating the pain after the bypass surgery....and I was given a prescription for pain pills lasting just the first week out.
After about 10 weeks, I started to feel better, and I judged myself for taking so long to recover.
But, I went back to work, and luckily have felt great...
except for..the pain in my sternum, and collarbone. I also have bad headaches, and the muscles in my neck, and upper back are always knotted. I attribute it to the surgery; and hate feeling like a whiner, but i'm just wondering if anyone else had problems with this. I can feel those wired around my breast bone, and it is so irritating. Any complaints during a doctor's visit are usually minimized...like I may be making it up, or I'm worried, anxious, etc..
what I would ideally like is for my insurance to compensate me for getting regular massages to help me cope with this. I paid for them the first year out, but I see this feels like it won't go away. I'm so grateful for the successful surgery, but I'm having some muscular/skeletal pain, anyone else??
If so, what works for you to cope?
