Dr. Check-up

so yesterday was my 6 week post-op surgery appt... everything looks good... he told me to keep walking and to increase my walking... dang!! he said i could go back to work on monday (yuck!) but just be careful and not to overdo it... i talked to t last night and he is all about doing whatever i need to make my job more comfortable.... he is so sweet!! i know i keep saying this but it is so nice to have a boss who cares instead of just considering you a number to increase the bottom line... the dr. visit was short and sweet, like all of them... he said that i could start yoga again but i need to wear the back brace... i can go see mary (massage therapist) again just tell her to be careful of the L5 area... and i have to wear my back brace for 3 to 6 months (depending on how fast my vertebrae fuse)... i'm way ok with that though... wearing the brace is so worth no pain!!! so, i'm all cleared for work....

I can't believe it is already been 6 weeks. How do you feel compared to before?

the pain i had before is gone!!! all i'm dealing with now is because of the surgery... being stiff and sore but the bad pain is gone!!! YEAH!!!!

You must feel like a new person! So glad to hear that you are pretty much back pain free! The stiffness and soreness will go away as you walk and stretch more (at the doctor's discretion, of course)
