I am considering shoulder replacement surgery, but I fear the anesthesia issue. After my last two surgeries, I could not pee and had to endure a couple days of catheters and a lot of pain. I am wondering if going into surgery with Flomax or some other preventative already in place might prevent my past experiences. My internal health is pretty good, although I do use antiinflammatories, sleep aids and meds for borderline hypertension and cholesterol.
You may have already had your shoulder surgery but I have been getting steroid/cortisone shots
every three months for about 2 years. My right shoulder is not responding much any more. I have found a clinic that does Stem cell. If you have never heard of that you should Google the amazing stories of Stem cell replacement. The clinic I go to just gave me shots in both my shoulders on Jan. 11. My right shoulder still hurts pretty bad. If it gets to the point that I need to have surgery on my shoulder, I will do stem cell instead. It can be done in the clinic and only takes about 1 1/2 hrs. One problem as far as cost, insurance won't pay for it and it's $3,500.
As far as the anesthesia during surgery, it can mess you up for a while. It takes a long time to get out of your system. I would think the Flomax would help. Good luck.
