Hello fellow PM folks!
I'm in my 4th day of recovery to revise PM. Surgery went very well on Nov. 8th! I no longer have a wire protruding out, nor skin paper thin! The surgeon relocated underneath my muscle just below my collar bone and you can't even tell I have a PM, with the exception of the incision! It's night and day! I am very excited and thankful! They used Durabond (like superglue) to close the incision and tell me that it'll take about 5-10 days to wear off. Having it underneath my muscle is definitely different than on top of it! There is definitely more pain in the recovery! My muscles are very sore but each day it gets better and my range of movement is improving. I've been using an arm sling as I have done in the last 3 surgeries I've had...it helps with fatigue in that tender area and if you are like me, it reminds you that you can't be using your arm even though the pain meds are telling you that you FEEL GREAT! :) (A little hint for those getting ready to undergo any PM surgery). Thanks for the prayers and good will! Keep looking up!
