I experienced some leg pain around six months ago and believed it was caused by playing more golf and tennis than normal. About three months ago the leg pain got worse and after consulting my GP he prescribed Voltaren and sent me to a bone specialist. He thought I might need a hip replacement but after an X-ray said no. He arranged an MRI scan. Unfortunately this showed a small bone tumour in the hip area. Further tests showed an enlarged prostate and a biopsy showed that the tumour was prostate related.

My PSA was After consulting a number of specialists the Urologist explained only option would be Hormone therapy. He arranged an injection of Eligard a new drug together with cyprostat acetate to stop the flare. After four weeks my PSA dropped to 1. My side effects have been quite minimal. No hot flushes and some tiredness. I am having acupuncture and taking some supplements as well as changing my diet. My libido has dropped but still functioning. I work as a tax accountant in my own business and am in the process of significantly reducing my workload so I can concentrate on my health.

Have consulted with a number of mentors and realise the medical profession can only do so much and it will be up to me to handle this situation.

Fortunately my wife has a number of contacts in the complimentary health field and that is proving to be useful.

We are planning to spend 10 days over Xmas in a Tao Buddhist health resort in Thailand and believe this will be a positive experience. Hopefully to below 1. Interested in talking to mentors in a similar situation especially with an emphasis on alternative and complementary treatment options. I had expected a sharper drop but my urologist said the result was good and it was important that the PSA stayed low for a period of time. He saw no need to change my treatment at this stage and he is reviewing my PSA every 3 months.

I spent 10 days at a Tao Buddhist health resort in Chiang Mai Thailand which was an interesting experience. Concentration on good food, exercise, massage and Chinese medicine. I need to go back for at least a month as I feel this type of treatment could greatly assist. Just spent a month at a Chiang Mai health resort in Thailand and felt really good as a result. Food was organic and plenty of exercise in morning and evening. No coffee or alcohol allowed. Had also treatment from a Chinese doctor who had plenty of success with acupuncture on many of the guests.

In my case concentrated on building up my energy and immune system. Also can eliminate any pain. Everyone was positive about everything. PSA has remained at 1. No real side effects apart from low libido. Realise most men prefer to adopt a more aggressive approach to cancer treatment but I intend to enjoy my good quality of life whilst building up my immune system by whatever means possible.

Just received my latest PSA test which has dropped from 1. Not a big drop but a welcome one as the PSA had been holding at 1. Still only having three monthly Eligard injections plus plenty of exercise and supplements and looking after my diet- hot flushes are increasing and not having any treatment yet.

After spending 5 weeks in Europe my PSA increased from 0. While my doctors were not worried about this it was the first time it had increased since diagnosis.

I then decided to have another test 4 weeks later and the PSA went back to 0. I decided to see an Oncologist to review my situation and he said to remain on my Eligard injections until my PSA started to rise.

He also said there a number of drug trials now available in Australia for advanced disease. Off to Thailand again for 2 months at the health resort in Chiang Mai. Hoping for some PSA movement. It will be a good test to see the impact of diet and exercise over a 2 month period.

Latest PSA has declined to 0. Have decided to increase physical activity such as more golf,tennis and exercise and also gym and swimming. I now have more energy and helps offset the effect of hormones.

Other changes have been fish oil tablets and also drinking alkaline water. Have installed a unit in the house so the water is on tap. Have developed benign positional vertigo which is apparently not a side effect but more annoying than anything. Being treated by a chiropractor and having some success. My doctor is happy with my progress but said I will have to remain on hormone therapy for ever which is not a pleasant thought.

Just celebrated Xmas with my family and still going OK. Chiropractor was worried so had a CT scan but the mets had disappeared and I had a small protruding disc on the right hip. Cut back the sport to only gym work and golf. So no more tennis. Back to Thailand in November for a stay at our health resort. Back into Chi Gung and good food. It makes a difference. Home for Xmas and then back again for a 2 month stay in January and February Introduced into the Nutri energetics system using a NES machine.

Had a test in Thailand and then came back to Australia to get the products as none available there. Saw an expert in Australia and had another test. It all depends on the interpretation. The Infoceuticals will hopefully boost my immune system and help fight the cancer have no idea whether this will work or not but the doctor at the Chiang Mai resort is going to use me as a case study.

He is also looking at my diet and said I should go nearly strictly vegetarian. Also advised a detox program. Arrived back in Australia after nearly 3 months in Thailand at the health resort and pleased that my PSA remained stable at 0.

Had an appointment with my Urologist and received another 6 month Eligard injection. Had no special treatment in Thailand apart from good food and exercise with an emphasis on Chi Gung. I was interested to see that the health resort is promoting stem cell injections mainly for rejuvenation purposes but can also be used to boost the immune system. This is an exciting area of research which is not offered in Australia.

It will be something to consider if the hormone therapy stops working although it is still regarded as experimental. PSA has now increased from 0. Doctor says if it continues to increase will suggest adding Zometa a bisphosphonate.

Still prefer to try natural methods to hold PSA. Have undergone a natural health program with Canhelp an Australian cancer charity who have had good success with all types of cancer. The program consists of a zero GI diet, resistance training, grape seed extract and vitamin B Today just back from my doctor and pleased that my PSA had dropped from 1.

So no additional medical treatment needed at this stage. I believe the reversal was the result of spending 2 months in a Thailand health resort concentrating on tai chi, chi gung and meditation.

Also reduced my weight from 92kg to 78kg by reducing my sugar intake. Very low GI diet and also undertaking resistance training. Received a 6 months Eligard injection today and my doctor said I should have a bone scan in 6 months when I will have completed 4 years on ADT.

Have just had my amalgam fillings removed as this had been advised by a number of health practitioners to do this. Did have some detox effect but not sure of PSA effect. My other blood tests remain normal and my local doctor has taken me off my blood pressure tablets on a temporary basis and also reduced the statins I am on to a lower dosage.

I spent some time recently at a retreat for cancer survivors organised by a local cancer charity "Bloomhill Cancer Help". Mainly female with breast cancer and it was interesting to note that nearly all had aggressive treatment including chemo and radiation.

I was in much better shape due to no chemo or radiation. The charity is an excellent support network and provides massage, reiki, meditation ,walking and counselling.

I was surprised at the benefit that can come out of this type of meeting and I will be spending more time in various activities there in the future. My last PSA showed a disappointing increase from 1. Had an appointment with my Urologist and he suggested I have a bone scan and see on Oncologist before my next appointment with him in Sept Will be going back to our Thailand health resort next week for a 5 week stay and will be concentrating on the many natural treatments that are available.

Hoping can get the PSA back under control otherwise I am sure the Oncologist will be prescribing some more drastic treatment than the monotherapy I am receiving at present. Have been in Chiang Mai Thailand for over three weeks using natural therapy so decided to have a PSA test at a leading Chiang Mai hospital to see whether the natural treatments were making any impact. Was very pleased to see that my PSA has dropped from 1.

My daily regime has included Tai chi, Qi gung, meditation, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, gym work and occasional golf. In addition I had some treatments from a Sharman who performed an exorcism on me. Back to Australia in two weeks and due to have another PSA test in mid September together with a bone scan. Will see my Urologist plus an Oncologist to review my situation. Back in Australia and my latest PSA was 1. Also had a bone scan which showed no evidence of mets after 4 years.

Had an appointment with an oncologist and he thought I was having a good response to ADT after 4 years but the cancer appears to be showing some sign of growing. He suggested maintaining monotherapy and adding a bisphosphonate such as Zometa if and when my PSA continued to rise. His main aim was to maintain minimal toxic treatment to minimise side effects and ensure quality of life. Was interested in my apparent ability to drop PSA after spending time in the Thailand health resort and thought diet was the main reason for the success.

Will not have to see my oncologist at this stage. Next test will be in March when I will receive my next Eligard 6 monthly injection. Spent 3 weeks in Thailand doing a tai chi course recently and returning there at the end of December for a 10 week stay. Convinced the natural treatments are helping to keep my PSA under control.

All my other blood tests were normal. However have increased my dosage of Zocor back to 80mg after dropping it to 40mg in the last 6 months. After spending 10 weeks in Thailand my PSA has increased from 1. Had a test in Thailand a month ago and it was 1. My doctors are happy with my progress and have had my regular six month Eligard injection.

No other treatment has been suggested apart from vitamin D3. Now approaching the 5 year mark and finding it harder to stay motivated. Now, six weeks later, […]. I tripped and fell July 22 — approximately 7. I began physical therapy last week, and will go just one day per week for 4 weeks for gentle range of motion only. I did not require surgery.

I am still under orders to not lift anything. I am a bedside Registered Nurse, and lifting is required for my job, so I am still off work.

I was wondering if there are other people here RNs or other whose jobs require lifting…. I have good medical care, but definitely feel they are lacking in providing both medical information which dispels fear and practical information. At 65 in a few days time I realise I am doing well. Worst thing to happen? No as I broke my leg 8 years ago and that was much worse.

I do believe it is easy to become depressed and I am struggling with that. My surgeon told me it is permanent but they said the same about my broken ankle and I broke my shoulder whilst running, so nothing wrong with the ankle is there? Can shower and wash hair alone at last. Could do with some encouragement myself. Hi, 2 weeks ago I fractured my left shoulder my main arm!!

Aswell as dislocating due to a 16ft fall. I am 17 and am very worried about the length of recovery sleeping on it correctly etc what would be a rough estimation for recovery? Does anyone have any knowledge on how long it will take to drive again as I have just brought a car and was planning to take my test next week. I broke my proximal humerus eight days ago, i went for my first evaluation yesterday and saw on the X rays the bones are not right, the long lower part of the break is stuck in a pocket of muscle it apparently pushed through when i fell off a ladder, i have been asked to wear a collar and cuff sling and told gravity over time will drop the bone out of the pocket of muscle and then it may join up with the other top bit.

I cannot see how it will find the other end, any ideas as we are really worried. Just broke my shoulder a week and a bit ago after I tripped and fell, and kinda panicky about the situation; to say I have to basically re-arrange my life totally around the injury is an under-statement. Yes I am aware individual situations differ and all, but all in all our blog article is very informative and reassuring.

I broke my shoulder 12 weeks ago. My daughter bought me a firm foam wedge pillow which allowed and still allows me a painless nights sleep. Had a major bicycle accident 3 wks today. Broke my shoulder in 5 places, took out a front tooth and other cuts and bruises. Getting along pretty well considering. Was wondering, when does the swelling in the arm and hand go away? Also how many weeks in did you start stretching from elbow down?

They told me to start this past Thursday. It seems to pull my shoulder. Thx for any info. Just down I went. Very very painful, especially the first 6 weeks; and difficult to do for myself I was so relieved when I could shower and do my own hair!

My most significant challenge has been dealing with the accompanying nerve paid — My bracheoplexis nerve set was stretched. Two outside fingers on my left hand were injured with the fall, and I still have issues there. The doctor says 12 — 15 months for recovery for me. Reading the blog brought tears to my eyes; so many of us have experienced this terrible injury!!! Best wishes for healing for everyone! I started sleeping on my shoulder at night when going to sleep just a few days after my surgery.

Now I am wondering if that was a good idea. No one ever told me not to. I seem to be making good progress, as I also broke my wrist, hip, shoulder, and cracked my pelvis.

I began walking without a cane at 3. It has now been 9 weeks and my shoulder still hurts when I sleep on it. What do you think? Should I continue to sleep on my shoulder? Somewhat relieved to know that miserable nights are the norm—I had the amazing stroke of genius when I moved to a retirement community a couple years ago to buy a motorized bed had a premonition it might come in handy some day! Back at home two weeks later further X-rays show no further displacement of the bones but this consultant said I also have another break, so the top of the humerous is in three pieces.

Sleeping upright on several pillows is the most comfortable I can get. I have just started the passive pendulum excercise but told not to do anything more yet. The swelling of the elbow and lower arm are really uncomfortable and have been told I can brace the upper arm against my body just above the elbow with the good hand and bend and flex the lower arm as much as possible.

This is starting to help with the swelling. My right arm aches to over-compensate for it. Please can someone give me some advice on this? Thank you for the informative description. I myself fell down a flight of stairs and dislocated my shoulder and fractured my humerous. From what I understand they are one and the same thing. The pain is unimaginable! And apparently will go on for several more weeks. My pain is not in my shoulder or upper arm but in my forearm.

I have a further CT scan in 5 days and will bring it up then but will suffer in silence until said appointment. Ex partner is not in the scene. Any help, ideas or just some chat would be much appreciated. What type of wedge pillow? My 81 year old Mom fell in the backyard and has severe shoulder fractures and wears an arm sling; however, she is in pain at night.

I had cash, I had credit cards, I had a checkbook, but I had to wait to have it X-rayed. I slipped on the ice 9days ago and fractured my shoulder. I was scheduled for surgery on Tuesday next week, but had to cancel due to delays with insurance authorization. I am now scheduled for more Dr visits with a possible request for a second opinion, CT scan etc. I came across this site and am thrilled to be able to read about others and their experiences. I am in my 60s and was still working when the fall occurred.

There are so many conflicting opinions and then having to deal with work etc, I get really depressed and sad thinking about how quickly my life has changed with this fracture.

Thank you for being here and sharing your stories! What a really first class website this and how useful to see that I am not suffering alone. I suffered a minor displaced fracture of the greater tuberosity terminology which meant nothing to me a few weeks ago! The pain in the night was very bad at the beginning and even though it has reduced, it is still enough to keep you awake or to restrict sleep to very short periods of an hour or if you are really fortunate 2.

The daytime pain has now just about disappeared but it always returns at bedtime. Trying to function during the day is a real problem and the complete deprivation of sleep is a kind of torture.

The greatest concern is the uncertainty about how long it will take before the pain stops in the night. All this happened due to a very foolish decision of mine to cycle in freezing temperatures which led to a slip on the ice. I never realised that a broken arm would be so problematic and have such long term implications.

Hello Michael, I especially liked your comment as you acknowledged the comfort and assistance of Jesus during this difficult time as I have also. I fractured my shoulder in three places on 4th January, just 8 weeks ago. I simply slipped on the kitchen floor and went down with a crash on the right shoulder. Like you, I find night time the hardest. During the day the pain is there but has settled more or less to a constant ache which is bearable.

During the night I use the time when I waken, which is frequent to pray for those people who are dying and in need of prayers. Hi Michael, how are doing now after breaking your greater tuberosity. I broke mine 4 weeks ago ice skating and was wondering how long it will take me to recover. I have a proximal humerus fracture which occurred five weeks ago in a cycling accident.

The pain is mostly in my muscle regions, but worse at night, and makes sleeping difficult. Although I am making strides in healing, I need to remember to be patient and am happy I can still go for walks, as I have not been cleared to run yet, and cycling will most likely have to wait until next spring.

I am glad I found this website, which helps immensely. This was a very difficult injury because the stress of surgery, the pain and loss of independence. The Lord gave me comfort during my recovery I could only find in him. I slipped on Jan 8th broke my humurus, balljoint of right shoulder, I am exclusively right handed.

My left is of no good to me. I had emergency surgery, a titanium ball with spike into bone. Drs say that my socket is ok. It has been a living hell. Sleeping was next to impossible, without sleep there is no healing.

I have been off of work since then on disability as my employer will not allow any restrictions. The good part is that I have started therapy and am moving along slowly. I still have a numb partial right foot as well as 3 fingers on right hand numb.

I could nt go potty for 10 days, had to have dr assist me. I went bought a lounger hoping I could sleep there but no. I finally got a big foam wedge pillow last week and it was like heaven, I am back in my own bed sleeping much better thank god. Drs said I was rather peachy after surgery. I am moving forward. Hello Kathy, I have something in common with you as am also in my 60s.

I fell on 4th January which is now 8 weeks ago and fractured shoulder in three places. I am finding my life has changed very much as you have. The depression is there and sometimes hard to resist and I have been finding it very hard to sleep and keep waking up with the pain which is more than just the shoulder but my back and of course the whole arm. On a brighter note, I was informed by the pharmacist that my pain management was faulty.

I had not been taking anything during the day, but every 4 hours during the night. Since yesterday I changed to following this advice — take one Ibuprofen three times in the day with meals and two Solpadeine before going to bed. Nothing during the night. This helps to build up pain relief over a period. I have to admit I did get a much better sleep last night so will keep this up. Did you have surgery yet? I am so glad it turned out that my fractures began to heal and surgery was not necessary.

I am confident that things will improve now. I am committed to doing the physiotherapy diligently and am working on improving the diet and general level of fitness. The healthier we become, the more healing will take place. So take heart and God bless you. I slipped on our shinny hardwood floors and dislocated my right shoulder and fractured the shoulder bone. Worst pain ever in my 69 yrs.

In my 2nd week of recovery this sight very incourging. How are you now? My fall was Feb 4. Hi, I also would like to say thank you for this site, it was of great comfort and use to me back in late November when I slipped and broke my humerus.

It is now almost 8 weeks and although still suffering with pain occasionally it is nothing compared to the first two weeks. I am hoping to be discharged from hospital when I have a visit next week.

I commenced physio three weeks in, just gentle arm rotations at first and progressed to assisted physio last week, which is proving rather painful, but I know I have to keep on doing it otherwise I will not regain full movement. Can you tell me how long the pain and discomfort will continue? To those people reading this who have just broken their shoulder, my heart goes out to you, its a miserable painful time but in two to three weeks you will begin to feel some improvement and no matter how small it is, its a sign you are healing.

God Bless you, Patsy. Hang on in there Patsy. It was so painful. I only knew that the pain was excruciating. The pain can still be severe, but not all the time……. I use heat patches which I have found very helpful. I only had the one X-ray and plan to ask for another to determine progress. I know several folk who have broken their shoulders in the last few months — all have had several x-rays. I do wish you all the very best for your recovery, it just seems to take a long time: So pleased to find this site.

On 30 December I was riding bike and taken out by a car. I have broken humerus and shattered ball and socket. Very frustrating and very depressing. I work full time in retail so unable to work. Will update tomorrow I really need some good news so a few prayers would be great. Pauline, I as well am 54 yrs old, broke humurus, ball joint on jan 8th have a titanium one now.

Just do the exercises PT gives U. I can identify with u. It will get better , Prayers. Permission to bend at the waist and allow arm to hang and to rotate passively in a circle 3. As for sex, when did yr doctors give u permission and whay positions wont harm the arm? I got my proximal humerus fractured two weeks back and the sugery and fixation got done. I am 53 years old.

Hi I got my left proximal humerus fractured 15 days back by slipping on wet floor of a hospital where I admitted my father for treatment the same day. The following day when got x rayed came to know about fracture and adviced to go for sugery and fixation.

I want to know how much time it will take for meto drive car, though I tried the same yesterday in my parking area with difficulty. I have been in crucial pain.. I was in n a car accident. Surgery took over 7 hours. I still sleep sitting up. Which hurts my butt a lot. I guess u have a long way to go from reading posts. Cierra I was told the same, it was jan 8th I identify with the pain of butt hurting, constipation.

It does get better hon. Minimum mg per day, and more, I took I just dislocated my shoulder and have one crack in my humerus. I deal well with pain, but this truly hurt. I am in sling and cannot lift my arm. I am very scared and am wondering if this is normal…. I also went over the dog and her ball! Feeling all alone and not really knowing what exactly I was meant to be doing only added to the agony and shock. All the tips and shared experiences would have been so useful.

Needless to say, surgery next week is inevitable. Can anyone shed some light on what to expect? Will the post-op pain be equally debilitating, as the initial injury? Will I be back in the recliner for weeks to come, lol?

The pain eases a bit once fixed, get a foam wedge at least 12 inches you can get in bed with that. Or the recliner again.

Hello, I fell on a stair master on November and keep lifting weights without knowing I fractured my shoulder. This whole time, I had been working 9 to 10 hours Monday thru Friday and typing a lot. The Ortho finally send me to a Pt for therapy. All this time, my pain never go away.

My question is , did your doctor recommends wearing a sling and not to go to work? I was just wondering, if typing is slowing down my progress. Hospital said dislocated tried to put back in place, obviously did not work. Had surgery, put back together with plates screws, rods, constant pain for 14 months. Screws loosened as did plates. Had total reverse surgery october I still have pain in bicep area, but have better range of motion and can now wash my hair with two hands.

I am 68 yrs old. Hi my name is Lauren and I broke my humerus on Sept 13th. I required surgery and had a plate put in Sept 16th, with several screws. ORIF of distal humerus. I am waiting for week 12 so I can start real PT and show improvement.

I am in a make-shift splint that I take off and exercise my forearm a little. I also have numbness and radial palsy. The radial palsy seems to be getting better, which is an awesome feeling. However I just recently got off pain narcotics. The dose was 2 every 4 hrs as needed. I was taking 2 every 4 hrs over 2 months.

My body was dependent on them so I went cold turkey. Worse week so far of my life. Now clear headed I am more depressed than ever. What scares me the most is non-union and another surgery. I will go mad. Pain rarely occurs unless its at night or when I manipulate my arm. I take alive for pain, which helps.

I am just so depressed esp relying on my hubby to help shower me, do my hair, and even help pull down my pants to go to the bathroom. I want my independence back now. Hi Lauren,, just come across this email you did in re: I am six weeks in going through the same operation and thought I was doing well initially , but the pain seems to be niggling constantly cannot seem to get it comftable no matter how I try. I am hoping you made a great recovery and all is well for you now.

This hopefully will encourage me with my recovery. I would just welcome the stage when I can dry my own hair and pull on my own jeans and put on a bra without help. I fell and broken my right shoulder on Nov 23 , , this has been the worse thing and terrible pain in my life. I still bad days. I can do almost dress my self without help.

Today has been a bad day with a lot of pain. They say I will have to have therapy for 3 months. Thanks for sharing that. I am the same age as you and fractured my shoulder in three places 8 weeks ago by slipping on tiles. I spent the first week or so trying to sleep sitting up in an armchair but can manage the bed now. However, it is very painful during the night and I waken frequently.

It was a comfort to read what others are suffering as I identify so readily with them. It is an opportunity to realise how vulnerable we are and to think of others suffering worse things.

I believe it is important to unite our pain with that of Jesus and offer it up for those in great need of prayers. I am a 77 year old woman and I tripped and fell 10 July , dislocated my right shoulder and broke my humerus into few pieces, I wanted to skip surgery but could not so I had surgery 5 August.

I slept in a recliner for 6 weeks because I could not get out of bed without help. I started therapy the very next week in home. I am still in therapy and I wonder how long I will have therapy.

My arm is much much better but nowhere near normal. I stumbled on this site and it is very helpful. I wonder if my arm will ever be normal again. We moved in April this year and as is my nature did too much, packed, lifted and unpacked 2 houses into one and was too impatient to wait for help. Always want things done yesterday of course! A simple cuff rotator repair has turned into a far more complex procedure.

Put simply I had repairs to a torn biceps tendon, supraspinatis tendon and articular cartilage! This is hideous, nothing like anything else. The lack of sleep is rehabilitating and the constant nagging pain unbearable at times. I usually find sleeping with a pillow under my arm helps but some nights nothing does.

I work for the Police and at the moment have been signed off work until March. I have had physio since the second week, twice a week and have home exercises that are increasing weekly. I can walk the dog which is a blessing in disguise although have yo be careful not to stumble. Today the pain is worse and I feel as though my arm is in a vice. One strip forward and then one back? Sorry to whinge but at least here you might understand!

Hot water bottles, heat patches, frozen peas, bio oil etc etc Comments, help and advice please. Thank you for reading my sorry tale x. Hi Suzie and fellow sufferers, Suzie, I can relate totally to your situation at the time you wrote this comment,and I hope you are doing much better now. I fell July 7th and sustained a proximal humeral head fx with a 4 part displacement. I started physio 2 weeks later. It was ordered passive range of motion, but my physio was more aggressive. The xray at 6 weeks showed lesser tuberosity to be malaligned.

Physio has been cancelled for 6 weeks and another xray will be done then. I am in a world of insane horrible pain. I am generally a strong and motivated person but this has completely drained me. Last week I was diagnosed with shingles, probably due to the now chronic lack of sleep and constant pain.

When does the light a the end of the tunnel come on? The bills are mounting and I fear not being able to work in my field of nursing again. Comments, advice experiences welcome. Hi Ann, I too am a nurse who fell and fractured my proximal humorous in 4 places. They decided not to do surgery. Now I am in an abductor brace to realign. Pain is there, but bearable. Have you returned to work?

I just fractured my shoulder in several places last week. I would have been and still would be- a zombie without painpills. Any surgery for you? It was a break in 4 places with separation and my othopedist and second opinion dr. They both said not having it would mean weakness plus loss of some motion.

However they said with surgery the results might only be somewhat better. Also can drive normally and have good strength in arm. So weeks would seem to be the time everybody has to get through. A few more points. I have two top doctors and both said I should get rid of sling in just two weeks to prevent stiffening in elbow.

Maybe surgery is something different. After 4 weeks I could only drive with my good arm with my bad arm holding bottom of wheel and helping to turn a little.

Again, for me to was about 5 weeks and I was basically free again. Good luck to all. I suffered communited proximal humerus fractures 4 weeks ago today. My ortho doctor had me take off the sling at 3 weeks post injury. I had only mild displacement and surgery was not necessary. Did anyone here go through a period of increased pain versus steadily decreasing pain?

My fear is that I did too much on my own and should have focused on more passive exercises. I also fear that the bones displaced more since I was using my shoulder more although he said the fractures were stabilized. Thanks for this site! It gave me so much info when I first read some on day 2. I broke the tuberosity of my left humerous with an almost circular crack, as well as two parts separated and well aligned and two other cracks on the upper humerous on April 14, Fell on uneven pavement with an umbrella in my right hand.

I live alone, and its been really challenging. Open bottles between legs with good hand pressing down. Nestle are the easiest. You may spill some, and you will deal with it looking like an accident. I have been xrayed at 1 and 3 weeks to verify that Terri.

So a simple xray can calm your fears. Doc said to add circular movement with arm hanging while bending at waist. Since 1 week, have been doing 12 bicep curls in hot shower morning and evening, leaving shoulder next to body. I was told to wait on PT until hard callous is seen on xrays between weeks. Ask others to open doors for you. Pulling on your good arm likely is straining the bad.

Eat out a lot by necessity, and be careful to choose lots of fruits and vegetables and hold the oils.

Nuts, seeds and avocados have the healing oils. Restaurants will make you anything if you ask. Being around other people will help ease the pain. Movie theaters are another good place to heal.

Short sleeps are the major problem. The unknown about ultimate activity capabilities is scary. Hi I broke mine on Boxing Day. And sm experiencing the same. This has been great. You think you are going crazy with the pain. I fractured my shoulder 5 weeks ago. Just started physical therapy and the pain seems worse than before.

From the other comments looks like it should start feeling better soon. Thanks for helping me with the stress. No surgery but the same symptoms that u wrote about. How r u feeling now? Did u heal without any complications.

You answered all of my questions. I , to, am in my 60s and broke my shoulder. I was really wondering how long to expect the pain to last. Thanks for some realistic idea about it. Hi Wanda I am almost 67 and fractured shoulder in 3 places on January 4th last. I just found out today that my pain management has not been the best. During the past few weeks I have tried not to take pain relief during the day but every four hours during the night.
