I completely underestimated how hard 4 hours ‘general admin would be. Although I have been into the office for a few hours the past two Sundays, I did have my lovely Steve with me to help. Today I had to get there by myself, on two buses, wearing a sling and carrying two bags – this was my first challenge. Although I wore my shoulder bag across my body I still had a bag to carry which I had to drop off in town on my way home. I didn’t realise how hard that would be. At my desk I found myself stretching my left arm to pick up the phone and holding the phone really made my shoulder ache. So mid morning the sling went back on but then I had to stretch across the desk with the other arm, luckily I didn’t get too many calls, but everything then took twice as long. I’m not back until Monday so I have all weekend to recover – I don’t think if I’d be able to manage a full-time job.
First day back to work ….

I guess this will be hard but once you adapt & get used to it you will find better ways to minimise the discomfort & awkwardness of everything …. Luckily your only part time & I hope that you can get used to things …. If anyone can do it you certainly can ….
Rest up Hun & maybe next time your in you will find it easier xxx
I am facing a shoulder replacement and have a question. Do you think I might be able to handle the post op pain with just Tylenol. I vomit my head off with any pain drugs. I have tried many through the years for various surgeries. I would rather pain than throwing up. Thanks for your suggestions.
I’m sorry but I’m not familiar with this drug so I’m unable to comment however if you are worried ask your doctor if they can prescribe you some anti-sickness tablets to take alongside your pain meds. Good luck with your op
