Thanks, Dr. Nath

Hello Dr. Nath,
 
My husband and I are so thrilled with the results from my surgery last week. We're still in shock that I can actually use my arm/shoulder to complete everyday activities, like blowing drying my hair, without repositioning my body to compensate for the winging scapula.
 
I truly appreciate everything that you've done for me. I don't think that I'll be able to properly express my gratitude. You and your team have given me a new lease on life because I'm now able to function as I did before this injury.
 
I have a slight amount of soreness due to the incision, but it looks good and the steri-strips are still on. I'm able to use my arm and shoulder properly in my daily activities; however, I'm careful not to open heavy doors with my right arm or lift my kids, etc. I have some muscle soreness in the deltoid, rhomboid, and serratus anterior muscles but it's only soreness that's slightly uncomfortable. The muscles are tired and feel like I've had a really good, intense workout. I'm sure they're sore due to the fact that they haven't been worked in two years and have atrophied.
 
I've been taking Tylenol for the soreness (500 mg tablet, 1 per 4 hrs.) and trying to rest my arm when possible. I have an appointment with Dr. Michael Freehill, Orthopedic Spec./Surgeon in MN, on 12/22 so he can follow up and see the results of your work first hand.
 
I'll keep you posted on my progress and hopefully Dr. Freehill will take it upon himself to connect with you after my appt. with him.
 
Again, thank you for all of your help and expertise. 
 
Sincerely,
NDW
