Pain Management

My recovery has been going much better this time around than it did in February.  I had a thoracotomy which is very painful. However, I am allergic to narcotics.  It is very difficult to recover from this type of surgery without narcotics.  I am blessed that my Dr's found some alternatives for me which seem to be doing the trick. It  is very important to discuss pain management with your
Doctor prior to surgery. That way your treatment plan will be in place as soon as you wake up in the recovery room.

How do you handle pain?


I am a shoe lover. I must say that my favorite year round shoes are  Tieks.  They are available by mail order only. They come in a variety of colors and prints and are supple and  comfortable. They are my go to shoe for all seasons.  Are you a Tieks lover. Please share. I cannot wait to hear your comments,
