I'm so pleased to hear from you and to get an update on your recovery. You mention that sometimes you will experience a "shock to my system." I'm thinking that must be a shock-like pain?
It is so good that you can get out for walks and go for coffee. Getting back to a normal routine is a good thing, isn't it?
I look forward to hearing from you again. Your comments help to inform and encourage others.
HAPPY FRIDAY TERESA!
FINGERS ARE STILL SO I AM USING ALL CAPS. NOT YELLING!!!
WENT FOR MY 2 WEEK POST-OP CHECK UP. SADLY, THE CD WITH MY XRAY WAS NOT WORKING SO WE COULD NOT TELL HOW THE DISKS ARE SETTLING IN.
I WAS TOLD ALL THE UP AND DOWN DAYS WITH HOW I FEEL ARE NORMAL. IT CAN TAKE 4-6 WEEKS FOR THAT TO GO AWAY. WE RAN TO THE HOPISAL AFTER THE VISIT TO TAKE A NEW ONE. I AM WAITING FOR A CALL WITH AN UPDATE.
IN THE MEANWHILE, MY RESTRICTIONS WILL REAMIN THE SAME FOR THE NEXT 2 WEEKS (UNTIL MY NEXT VISIT AND MY NEXT XRAY). ACTUALLY, 2 RESTRICTIONS WERE LIFTED. I CAN NOW DRIVE AND I NO LONGER HAVE TO COVER MY INCISION WHEN I SHOWER. YIPEE FOR THAT BECAUSE THE TAPE, WHICH WAS FOR SENSITIVE SKIN, WAS IRRIATATING ME.
AS LONG AS THE XRAY COMES OUT GOOD, I'LL BE ABLE TO HAVE MY LUMBAR INJECTION.. HURRAH!!!!!
HAVE A GREAT DAY AND WEEKEND!!!!!
JUST SITTING HERE RECUPPERATING. STILL EXPERIENCING DISCOMFORT. I FIND SITTING AND RELAXING SEEMS TO BE THE ANSWER. I NEVER REALLY KNOW WHICH MOVEMENT WILL SPARK A SHOCK TO MY SYSTEM.
OTHER THAN GOING OUT FOR A WALK WITH MY HUBBY A COUPLE OF TIMES DURING THE DAY AND GOING FOR COFFEE, I AM REALLY NOT GOING OUT. MY LUMBAR IS HURTING SO WALKING IS NOT MY FAVORITE THING TO DO RIGHT NOW. LUMBAR IS NEXT.
MY PAIN DOC AND SURGEON SAID I HAVE TO WAIT ABOUT 6 WEEKS BEFORE I CAN GET A LUMBAR SHOT. THEY DON'T WANT ME TO BE PUMPED WITH STERIODS. I ALSO COULDN'T HAVE A SHOT BEFORE. FUNNY, THE SURGEON HAD ME ON STEROIDS FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS TO REDUCE THE SWELLING.
OH WELL, IF THIS WORKS, IT'S ALL WORTH IT!
HAVE A TERRIFIC DAY TODAY!!
