Re: Board in the butt??? WHAT??

It wasn't me. I swear, I felt/feel like I've got a bandage under my skin. My incision is right on my spine and I never felt like I had even been cut. After six months I sat down kind of hard and I was made very aware of missing shock absorbers.

Re: Board in the butt??? WHAT??

OK OK I admit it, it was me! I said it feels like I have a board up my butt because I can only move at certain angles (i.e. no leaning, twisting, bending, etc) and have to keep my spine extremely straight. It was a moment of lunacy and frustration because I can't move like a normal person! Sorry if I scared you, it really isn't that bad!

Hey Jessie,
Thanks, Actually I thought it was funny. But did really wonder if that was how the hardware would feel. Thanks for posting

After you start healing you won't notice anything different as far as mechanics. I'm starting to bend a little, and move more freely. The restriction I feel aren't because of hardware...it's because of muscles that have gone soft.

Re: Board in the butt??? WHAT??

For the first seven to ten days just take your pain meds and try to walk around the house, and don't try bending over--just sit in your easy chair or lying down with pillow under your knees and support your neck for your comfort. Its real not bad and the more walking with promote faster healing physiologically generate more blood flow to the area aiding in faster healing. Don;t worry about nothing. Good Luck! truckermann

Plus Medicare is sending out a Hospital bed for the second bedroom. It will have to be MY room for awhile.
