The one before the 6 week check up

It’s almost time to see my surgeon again. Almost time for the 6 week post-op check up. So, how is it? Well, I’m averaging 5 hours sleep a night, so that’s better, right? And, I have moved on from trying to sleep on my back. I can sleep on my side/stomach (not the side that was operated on, obviously). But, I still get sore, achy, and stiff after a while and have to move.

And the shoulder? The ROM? I don’t think the ROM has changed since my last physio therapy visit. If anything, it seems slightly less than it was. It’s still crunching and popping and making weird noises. It feels sore quite a bit. Is it normal? I know it’s still healing, so perhaps it is. Perhaps I should still be taking pain relief?

Apparently, because of the lack of sleep, I am hyper sensitive to pain, so maybe it’s not that bad after all?
