Ed’s surgery journey, 72 hours post

72 hours after surgery finally got to remove the dressing and see the 5Β  points used by the surgeon to reconnect my bicep, grind the collarbone and shoulder socket and reconnect tendons and other tissue. I spoke with the surgeon this morning as she called to ask about how cannabis was working treating my pain. I explained that while I’m sure pain pills would have taken away a hundred percent of the pain, I feel like cannabis is taking away 75% and is not subjecting me to the risk of opioid addiction. She had a couple additional thoughts in that through the non-use of opioids I also was not dealing with constipation or another digestion issues, lethargic behavior and short and long-term dependency issues. She plans on visiting our facility in the near future in the hopes of being able to recommend this alternative therapy to her patients.

  1. Dang,
    Now I understand why things are at a standstill at your facility.
    Here’s hoping you’re up and functional in the near future.
