So Andy, how was your first night at home? I hope you had the good sense to take a pain pill before you settled down for the night. Nuture that arm and doo what the doctor ordered.

I'm being a good boy and doing exactly what the doctor told me to do. As you can see I'm writing this response about 4:30 in the morning because I have been sitting up and sleeping on the sofa as that's the recommended way.

I've been taking Percocet since about 6 o'clock last night that seems to be taking the edge off the pain.

You will notice that in a couple of days, the pain will be starting to lessen a little more each day. Just don't try to become Mr. Macho and let up on the pain meds. Take them as prescribed for the first week. You don't want to let the pain get a hold on you. Then it will be harder to get back under control. For some strange reason, laying down flat seems to increase the pain level. And at night the pain seems to increase. The night pain has to do with atmospheric pressure. I don't quite understand it.

I appreciate the advice. I've had little real pain and only related to movement. I've already cut from two pills to one every 6 hours. Not to be a hero, just don't feel any pain. I know to not let the pain get ahead of me.

I will be MIA from now until at least tomorrow night or Thursday. I am going into Vancouver for my follow-up appointment for my chronic pain management group. The group itself (8:30 am to 3:30 pm), not to mention the 1 1/2 hour commute each way takes a lot out of me, but it is worth it. I am really excited to find out how everyone else is doing and share my progress as well.
