We are thrilled to hear the good news about you. I can imagine, how you must feel, since you are experiencing success and healing. We all encourage you, to keep up the good work, with PT, and getting out and about in the world again.
You're light will shine brighter and brighter each day as time goes by. Just don't over do it!
As for me, I still suffer some pain, but as my wife and I took a small walk last night, along the same route I used to walk when I was recovering, I told her that there was a major difference from how I used to feel, when walking the same route.
I still feel like Im cycling, between good days and bad, but that, it is starting to even out. I have my hopes that I will get better, and do feel that I am, but it is a very slow, slow process. My meds seem to be working well, and I get relief from the pain on much less than I used to take, so I think that is a good sign. Anyone with a lumbar fusion, will tell you that sitting is the hardest on a person, and that holds true for me as well.
Mikel, it is important, as you well, know to keep moving forward, and not to let yourself lay around too much. Our bodys are made in such a way, that we need to exercise it. Not easily done, when suffering pain!
Take care, and we always enjoy hearing from you.
(I fired up the Harley last night, and it was so good to hear that rumble again. Nope! I did not ride it, and will put it off untill my 1yr anniversary of the surgery)
