Through this episode the breathing has been the main problem but now the pain is worse. Both arms have shooting pains and every swallow is very painful. The swallow problem wasn't happening at all before. The arms are getting worse - I just keep telling myself that more time is needed to complete the healing. Did others have more pain 3-4 weeks after surgery? Are there just bad days then improvement?

I'm going to Florida July 14 for my mother's birthday. My five other siblings and their children will all be there so I will not miss! I plan on bringing my brace and wearing if necessary and doing whatever else I need to be more comfortable. I've already called the hotel and requested 8 pillows!

I'm scheduled to see a Pulmonary Doc in 2 weeks. Got on the list in case of an appointment cancellation so maybe earlier.
