Hi Rose, I have been following you along since getting home from the hospital. I am so impressed at well you are doing and very happy for you. For you to be able to tell such a difference in your pain is so encouraging and good for others to read that may be in need of surgery at some point in their life.

I see that you have had to back off a little on the walking because you were over doing things a tad. Hope you have got back on your feet from that.

I read in another post some where that you had swept a floor. Please, please be very careful doing this. I had a surgery and that was one thing my dr said not to do and I know of other drs saying to hold off on that, changing sheets on a bed & running a sweeper or mopping for a while after having back surgery. My surgery was not a back surgery either. There is something to do with the motion that they say is not good for someone fresh from surgery and you still are. I know you feel good and you are going to be a hard one to keep down because you were down for so long, but I sure do not want you having setbacks, they are to hard to bounce back from. If you can get someone else to do this for you for a bit.

Take care and keep us posted on how you are doing....Susie

Thank you, I actually just use a swiffer thingy because I have 3 pomeraniun dogs and they loose hair like crazy. I never actually bend over I use my knees to bend and a grabber so I do not stretch and hurt myself. It's more like I push dirt and hair around, lol.

I actually had a little set Bach because...I got stuck in my chair. Lol I have a lift chair and I reclined it to have a little rest but I knocked the remote down under the foot part so it was either wiggle my way out or wet my pants and I chose the wiggle. It's funny now but man my butt muscles got a workout. I am being careful but as you said it is nice to be moving.

Thank you for your concern, my surgeon says he will not be able to tell if the fusion worked for at least another 2 months. Keep your fingers crossed.
Take care
Rose

Hey Rose, I have a golden retriever and a brittany spaniel, both are indoor dogs and yes I do understand the dog hair situation all too well. I told my husband it seems like I sweep up enough hair daily to make two more dogs. I keep the retrievers hair cut and that helps. It gets extremely hot here in the summer and it really helps getting that hair off, plus she feels better.

Oh, I bet that was some sight you trying to get out of that chair, lol. Just so glad you are doing so well and feeling good. Will keep my fingers crossed all continues to go well.

Take care...Susie

Thank you, my sister told her husband and he said omg how much weight did she gain, I told her to smack him. Lol.

My exercise today was doing some laundry, I went downstairs and up 4 times today and used my grabber to reach inside the machines, wow that sure is a handy tool.

No more stairs for awhile my back is sore but it is muscular hurting not like before.
Take care
Rose
