The Beloved Hospital Gown

None of the people above are me but I could relate to the guy on the left yesterday as I spent my morning in the hospital for rotatory cup surgery.

The 3 or 4 previous months have had a lot of pain in them for me so I was really looking forward to this surgery. When I met with the surgeon a month ago, after he had a lot of time to evaluate the mountain of data accumulated related to my fall and it's damage, he was sure he could restore my health.

He was mistaken. After surgery I was informed that the damage was greater than expected and I can expect a shoulder replacement in the future.

This surgeon is well known as the best in the area and that is a well deserved reputation. He operated on my knee 20+ years ago and I have not had a bit of trouble since.

My Real Estate tie-in is that no one has an absolutely perfect record if they have been in the business for a good period of time. That is why Dr's and Real Estate professionals have insurance... incase they leave your behind exposed!

And what about those hospital socks? I darn near have a whole drawer of them now and not two pairs of the same color. Have you ever tried wearing a pair for an entire day... geesh.

Hello, Bob "RealMan" Timm I am so sorry your surgery did not provide the expected results. How disappointing.  At least you know it is not because you had a 💩 doctor. 

No gowns or socks for me. Thank you.

Hi Bob- speedy recovery!!! Larry had this surgery about 7 years ago. The key for him was sleeping for the first week or so upright in a recliner. Some people buy those pillows that allow you to sit up in bed.

Those gowns bring a lot of people down from their high perches quickly. No place to hide.

Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist I am hoping the results are better than the Dr thinks they will be. If I do have to have a shoulder replacement at least I know my friends that have had that surgery have all done well with it.

Kathy Streib my wife and both wondered why they made a couple of references to a Lazy-boy. It wasn't until we went to bed that I figured it out. Thank you for wishing me a speedy recovery, that would be nice.

Lucky for me Ed Silva, 203-206-0754 I have zero modesty BUT I will admit they are not my favorite apparel.

Bob, I am not fan of surgeries or doctors... one has been suggesting an operation that I have been avoiding for two years... and I am OK with it, Endre

I am sorry to hear your surgery did not give you the results you hoped for. I hope you get over the pain of surgery soon!

And hospital socks and gowns are no fun to wear. Yuck.

Endre Barath, Jr. there are times I think I could use a whole bidy replacement and of course some people would say to throw a brain transplant in as well... oh well. I am really tired of pain and I was hoping this would help alleviate it.

Thank you Kat Palmiotti . I've become so used to pain that post surgery I've only taken 2 pills when according to directions I could have taken more than 12 by now as prescribed. No need to be doped up if I don't have to be PLUS by not taking them I can drive... as I did to work this morning.
