I'm with you on hoping its that you overdid it yesterday, digging your Sprinkler system? Even though you are feeling a little better from the surgery, you are still at a fragile point in your healing! It takes a full year to fuse completely. Till then what you do NOW predicts your future outcome! I'm thinking that we your HW friends need to take a trip to FL and tie you to a chair so you stop thinking you are SUPERMAN...well we think you are...but you've got to give your body time to heal!
Call your Dr. ASAP and then sit your butt down and take care of YOU! P L E A S E!!!!!!!!
REST, REST, REST, ICE, HEAT, REST, REST, REST!!!

I know I haven't been on this site for long but I just have to jump in as well and say take it easy Pete. I can't believe you were out fixing a sprinkler system, our water restrictions don't let us use sprinklers and it sounds as if your body should be restricting your use of them!
I also can't believe your boss! Mine is so understanding, mind you he suffers from recurrent kidney stones so he is no stranger to pain himself! I'm glad your boss was cool about the potential week off. I really hope you haven't done any serious damage. Fingers crossed for you for Wednesday.
Sorry Pete and no "I told you so"s"
I think sometimes I do things I know are going to cause me problems later just so I can say I did it! I get so weary of the cant do's that every once in awhile I do like Nike and "just do it" Lol
At those times I at least remind myself I am still living or the pain reminds me anyway!
Sure am glad I have one of those VERY large hot water tanks!
Hope this day brings some relief.
