Take the meds!

I had four tears repaired about four years ago....the post-op was some of the worst physical pain I have ever endured. It took me almost a year before I felt like myself again...

Heal well!

Got staples and screws in my shoulders. I feel your pain. The meds are good for a minute but you'll build a tolerance quickly. Best to take em first day post surgery then save yourself for when you begin physical therapy. Take as few as possible.

BTW RE Steve's comment on "the worst" pain...
I cut my thumb mostly off once.
It hurt pretty good, but nothing like
when I hit that same thumb quite squarely with a 22 ounce Estwing framing hammer the very next day.
I've had some serious pain in my life...
but that was pretty impressive. grin

Anyway...
Happy healing!

My advice: take your meds. Studies have proven that pain endured may last much much longer than you imagine. A certain kind of memory response develops that means things will hurt long after the injury has healed. The consequence of this is that surgeons are over-medicating their patients and putting them at risk of other things, especially pneumonia. Part of my job at the hospital was to try to prevent this from happening by coaching the patients in deep breathing.

So when the therapist comes in to asses your progress with deep breathing, do it religiously. You'll get out of the hospital quicker.

The wort pain I ever felt was when I dropped a Maico 490 engine on my big toe from about eighteen inches. It didn't make a sound when it hit and for a moment I thought, "that was odd." Delayed reaction...then my head exploded....spinning stars...bells....birdies....just like in the cartoons.


Get well soon,

Bill

Never broke any bones or anything else, also no hospital visits for me guess I am lucky.had several bad crashes though! once rolled a BSA & sidecar went over about five times, been thru a hedge at 95 mph+ had the sidestand flick out to the stand position on a fast left hander so couldnt lean the bike just missed a big tree plus loads off road bashes/bruises...But the worst pain I have ever had was once I was undoing a left hand top fork nut on a T140 Triumph when the socket slipped and I bashed my elbow on the right hand mirror mount felt like it had been hit with a sledge hammer the pain shot thru my arm like electricity I felt sick and dropped bike, next day my elbow turned blue /yellow /purple in colour and I didnt ride for a few days after that.

Felt GREAT the day of the surgery (Thursday)! no pain, no issues. ate good...Awesome!!!!.......next day post op....felt GREAT. minimal pain. post op visit went well. Granted, I was eating a few of the pain meds. Dr. asked about pain level since I didn't take the surgical nerve block, only the general anathesia (sp?). anyway....he shook his head and gave me the long slow .....alright........ then. (I thunk he knew somethin I didn't!) lol.

That night into Saturday.....different story. fever, shakes, sweats. totally friggin shot to hell!
I guess I was detoxing the general! bit better today. it hurts more now. oh well.... starting PT tomorrow. Let the fun begin! no pain pill. I thought I would just puke them up. fun fun fun!

BTW: 1 pain pill a few hours ago....thats been it.

Worst short pain? uh...there's been lots. I guess when I cut halfway through my thumb on the bandsaw, but getting the stitches to sew it on was worse.

Worst Long pain. Kidney stones (3 times).....man....don't even go there........no recomended..... remember kiddies...drink lots of water!!!!!!!

Worst pain I ever had was when my A10 engine blew up for the THIRD time, MAN that hurt me REAL bad. Been suffering from it for ages, still makes me hurt just thinking about it.. frown

Sooner have me broken nose, torn leg ligaments and broken shoulder, all over again, rather than have THAT sort of pain, even the Lovely Janette was affected by it.. shocked

Heal well dude, and get back on the bike soon.. bigt
