Re: Recovery from L4/S1 PLIF
Bob, i hope each day bring more pain relef. My post op pain was strong.. And in places i did not have prior to surgery. Muscle spasams were the worst. It was week three and four before i began to have much positive attitude and relief. Be patient, dont let your muscle relaxers run out. It is hard to catch back up, i know from experience!
Walk as much as you can lying still makes you more stiff and tight. My family began calling me the duck target as i paced back and forth behind the couch as we watched tv.
I am sending you healing positive thoughts. This forum helped me when i needed it and i hope i can Do the same!!
