      TOPIC: Latarjet procedure in 4 days. Im scared poopless!

      Latarjet procedure in 4 days. Im scared poopless! 1 year, 6 months ago #31530

      Hello everyone! Its been very scary reading all of your stories. I am having the latarjet procedure on Oct 9th. I have been having an anxiety attack for the past 3 days, nonstop. My doctor has prescribed me 60 (quantity) 10mg oxycodone. Honestly I don't think this is enough. I have a very low tolerance for pain and a high tolerance for opiates. The reason I know this is because each time I've dislocated I was prescribed 5mg oxycodone. It did help with the pain but it was still there.

      I had a arthroscopic procedure as well, 2 years ago I had screws put in my shoulder to prevent dislocations (same doctor). The 2 days following the surgery I was in extreme pain, up at night crying. I was given 10mg oxycodone.

      I am not only scared of the post op pain but the complications this procedure can cause post op (nerve damage, grinding) and even later down the road.

      Not sure what to do. I only dislocate when swimming or doing something with my arm above my head. But I feel I can live the rest of my life without the surgery. Yea I wont be able to climb a tree, escape a burning building by ladder, or lift my future children above my head but I just don't know.

      My shoulder cracks everyday, loud, multiple times a day since a year ago. My last dislocation (Aug 8th 2015) was the worst of the all (8).

      I apologize in advanced for the formatting and grammar errors.

      Thanks
      Joe
