    Hi ladies,

    Just wondering how long it will take to feel back normal! I’m currently 4 days post op and feel like I’m managing ok but still can’t put my hair up myself or use my arms much. I’m back in work Monday so hoping I feel a bit better within 2 more days I work from home doing office work so not to bad but I have a really busy job so hoping I can handle it! Would love to know how other people are feeling xx

    Hiya lovely, 6days post op now and I can’t believe the difference over the last day. I actually managed to get myself up and dressed yesterday (5days po) whereas day 3 I couldn’t even walk downstairs without help. Just keep being patient and resting plenty, I’m sure you’ll be feeling more normal shortly xx

    Aww glad to hear you are feeling much better!!! I am up and able to walk round the house it’s just annoying me that I can’t put my hair up myself 🙈😂 as stupid as it sounds! But I am feeling much better each day just can’t wait to feel back to normal! When are you back in work? Xxx

    I’m 7 days post op and still can’t move my right arm more than a couple of inches 🙋🏼.
    I’m back to work Monday but the MYA doctor has recommended a gp note for another week… Feeling I’ve had too much time off since before Xmas so I’m reluctant to do this. Wondering whether I should work from home for two days and hope I’m well enough to do some visits which means driving Wednesday onward 🙈.
    Look forward to hearing how youre doing x

    Oh dear I’m quite bad with my right arm too!! I get a really bad pain in my chest if I try and move my right arm to much but with my left I can lift it up quite high! I know what you mean I really don’t want to work on Monday but I don’t want my boss to be pissed off but it’s abit easier for me working from home! My partner goes back to work Tuesday though and we have a 7 month old puppy and he is so strong so don’t know how I’m going to walk him yet! Yes I would possibly speak to your work and ask if you can work from home 🙂 they should appreciate that! I hope you start to feel better soon😊xxx
