I used just the straight cane when I had my hip replaced, but this one just
feels so strange. Guess I will have to learn to use it though.

Good Grief, Woman!! I'll tell you what Bob tells me...."We bought that cane
for a reason - use it!" LOL Go ahead, sweetheart, use the cane. It's much
less painful than contact with bookcases.

For about 4 weeks now, I've had pain in my right arm and shoulder any time
use that arm. I finally called my orthopedic surgeon to have him look at
for me. He did my left rotator cuff twice, and years ago, the right
shoulder was done one time in Florida. They xrayed my neck and shoulder
there's a lot of arthritis in my neck, which he said could add to the
problem. When he lifted my arm above my shoulder, it popped twice so loud
that a man way across the room heard it.
He doesn't do surgery unless necessary, so he said let's try an injection.
He doesn't do injections as easy as my RD does, but I can't wait until
so he did it. Wow, did it hurt! My arm moves easier now but it still
hurts, and I can't pick up anything with it; have to prop it up with the
left arm. He did give me a prescription for Lortabs, which helps.
On top of that, I fell Monday, backwards, and hit a book case. Have a
wonderful purple bruise all across my middle back, and it is also sore.
Guess I'm going to have to do as my neurologist says and start using my
cane to keep me upright. Yes, getting old is for the birds, particularly
when you have a lot of health problems to go along with the age. I keep
telling God that I'm ready when He is! Apparently He isn't yet.
My prayers for all that are having so many problems right now.
