DEVASTATED

Yesterday was my post op. appointment with the surgeon. He did not have good news. This second op has not succeeded in keeping my bone together. The crisscross wires have held and the bolt through my bone, but the small plate at the shoulder end of my bone has come away and the' pins' supposingly holding it in place look on the x-ray as though they are coming out. I did say right away to him,  that I am not having anything else done for the moment as after this second op. the pain has been unbearable. So he agreed and I have a further appointment to see him in 5 weeks time but I am going to ask for a second opinion as to what can be done... he is a very nice person and a technically good surgeon, with a very good reputation,  but I can only take so much. I am upset as you can imagine, the thought of living the rest of my life like this is daunting.. I have had a bad night waking and crying, we were drinking tea at 3:30am again!
Lots of prayers needed please!

Dear, dear Chris. I am praying. I just don't know what to say. Wow. You are very, very smart to get a second opinion. I would get that appointment set up right away. Get this horridness over with my friend.

I really understand how you feel, the last thing you want is another operation. I hope they can resolve your problems and you are on the mend soon.

Sending PRAYERS your way! My Sister just had a second surgery after she fell and damaged her leg! The knee replacement part is all good but some tendons had to be repaired. She and you will hopefully be all better soon! HUGS!
