    My sister had rotator cuff surgery yesterday. Apparently there was a larger than anticipated tear, lot's of bone shaving, and repair. She's in a ton of pain. Doc gave her 10mg of oxy, every 3 hours, and it's given her no relief.

    Anyone have this surgery, and what did you find was the most effective pain meds? Someone recommended tramadel in combo with the oxy. FYI, my sister, unlike me, has a very high threshold for pain, so if she's complaining, it must be off the charts hurting her :sad:

    I had rotator cuff surgery and the oxy did it for me. I wouldn't have hesitated to tell the Dr if that wasn't enough. It's part of their job to relieve the pain.

    Tell her to do her PT when that starts. It'll make or break a speedy recovery depending on how committed she is to doing it.

    I always count on people who don't care enough about their own health that they smoke for my health advice.

    Well, my number one would be talk to the fucking doctor and not make a post on a message board.

    They can up the dose on that. That's just a starting number.

    MLaw's Sister: Nurse, this isn't helping the pain.

    Nurse: I will talk to the doctor.

    Doctor: I will raise the dose, or switch the drug.

    I hope she has an easy recovery. That sounds awful.
