yes , a good nights sleep does seem to heal better , i notice that when i do get a good 5 to 6 hr. sleep , but unfortunately i haven't been sleeping worth a crap .
I most definitely won't be attempting to pick up anything really heavy or out of my extreme . I sure hope to get some seeds in their cups in the next couple of nights . Got plenty of time yet .
Have you tried sleeping in a recliner? I moved a chair into the bedroom for the "bad nights" when I'm keeping the wife awake. I have my heating pad setup there too. And they say "hard work never hurt a man" is pure crap! Damn getting old is hard...LOL But it sure beats the alternative I much rather like the saying: "you never slow down, you never grow old" <-- Tom Petty. The wife bought me this gizmo for my shoulder, it arrives (hopefully) on Friday. If it's any good I'll send you the link. We need all the help we can get!
lol , i appreciate it , your spot on about all the help . I was in that stupid recliner for 2 months , tried the couch a week ago . bout worse ! been in the bed last 2 nights , but up about every couple hours with that just enough ACHE . Guess its just gonna take time ( i hope ) and move south , lol Gonna just hitting it hard till it disappears or wears me down first ! lol
The sleeping on that repaired shoulder might just take some time, I'm not one for sleeping on my back. But sometimes it's the only way I can sleep, but then I snore, and catch elbows and shakes from LB. No rest for the weary. Two things OTC that help sleep. Melatonin and Benadryl, but they need to be taken just before you crawl into bed. Should help for the first 4 hours
What's really a shame is I know this crap
May I assume someone had the dreaded rotator tendons reattached? Trust me, in a year that shoulder will feel like you stole it from Supaman!!
I had 3 tendons in my right shoulder reattached 3 years ago, followed by the most excruciating rehab I've ever experienced. I was told it is the single most painful recovery you'll ever go through.
Slept in a La Z Boy for two months, maybe longer, wearing a half-straight-jacket to immobilize the arm, haven't sat in a recliner since because of it.
The phys therapy is hell too.
But OH am I better! It's now the strongest joint in my body.
The trick is patience. And pain. And doing their stupid exercises and routines...
But I just stopped by to 'Attaboy' my buddy from Devine....
