      Andrew,

      glad to hear you made it through the surgery ok, even tho the damaage was more then expected. sucks the nerve block didn't work, that happened to me once as well, they paralyzed the bottom part of my arm but not the shoulder enough, so not only did i feel the pain right away, but i still had no feeling in my hand. ice lots and keep to a strict pain med schedule every 4 hours, don't want to get behind on the painkillers and have to play catch up.

      hi all andrew here,
      i am really glad you guys are out ther becaus my wife works all day i am alone till 6 pm everyday.
      well i took an ambien last night slept like a baby.
      maroon make sure you ask your doc to make sure you are aware enough when you do the block so it works for.this doesnt happen offten but just in case.
      to answer your question no i have no cathator pain pump but since they kept me over night they put a pain pump in my iv with a manual button that i could push every 6 min. not much help thu.
      leanne,
      so sorry to hear about your block nothing like having a reminder of what happened and paid at the same time is your hand gettin back to normal?
      maroon don't worry about the surgery it mostly goes well just be positive follow your docs info keep your pain medsgoing every 4 hour or better 20 earier so they dnot run out.
      let us no how it goes.
      btw i will send some pics to give you an idea of what is to come.
      andrew

      Tank you, and yes I will do those things, especially with the nerve block. I expect this to go smoothly. You seem to be doing well this quickly out of surgery. Did you have an evening surgery? Is that why you were there overnight?
