fifteen weeks later.........

It is now fifteen weeks plus since I had a CABGx5 surgery. I have fought and am still fighting my battles post op. I have recently started experiencing excruciating pain in my right shoulder blade making it a nightmare trying to lie down or sleep. It feels like a dozen elephants are jumping on me. Painkiller effect lasts only for an hour or so and then the elephants start jumping again. BTW I am nearly 67 years of age. Any suggestions, any one?

Shoulder pain is fairly common with this type of surgery and can take several weeks to resolve. What does your doctor say?

My doctor says "not to worry, it will go away on it's own". This is normal and can keep recurring at any time for around a year or two:-(
