Sorry I haven't been posting like I should be.
I'm now 6 wks post op, and have my daughter back full time.
It is hard, but I just could not stand sending her away anymore! I had a post op dr apt on Mon, and he said I should now begin physical therpy.
I explained that I still had lack of sensation in my foot and calf, he told me that that is normal, and I should get the feeling back in a few months... UGH! I also told him that I am terribly achy, I had been taking Aleve, which didn't do anything for me, he gave me an rx for Vioxx... we shall see. Overall, I don't have much leg pain anymore. What I do still have he said was 'memory pain'
which should go away. I feel so-so. I still have major pain in my lower back, although I don't have the constant burning
any longer. I'm sure that the surgery has helped me partially, but I'm concerned that my back pain is here to stay, and that's very frustrating all in itself!
Hang in there hang in there hang in there.......
I am just so sick and tired of hearing that......................
