xray and follow up

tomorrow is my first official post-op follow up. I had xrays done Monday and will get to see them for the first time tomorrow. Anyone have any good questions I should ask about?
I already will ask about :
Physical Therapy, longer driving distances, can I sit in a spa/hot tub?, .......
I am really looking forward to it, I guess

Re: xray and follow up

Good luck Mel! Is your hubby coming with you? I know mine had questions for the doctor that I had forgotten (things I had mentioned but forgotten). He also was there for me when I first saw the x-rays (which mine at lest) looked a bit scary (kinda like a "mist" where your spine should be) and joked with me during the wait for the doctor to come in.

If he can't come with you, you may just want to ask him if he has questions, or if he can remember anything you've mentioned saying you've wanted to ask the doctor??

Good luck, we'll be waiting to here what your doctor says.

Re: xray and follow up

hubby did go with me All he really cared about was if I could drive or not! Guess he is tired of "Driving miss crazy" "miss shopaholic he hates to go to the mall crazy">........

Hey Mel, you may have already been to the Dr. but I wanted to wish you luck. I know for myself it was a real relief when I first saw my xrays. I was more confident that everything was alright.

Looking forward to your post,

Lorie

Re: xray and follow up

oh it sure was great to see and hear I was doing well. I think I am pushing my luck a little somehow. You all remember how I have been a "Shopping Machine" well, the past two days I haven't been out NEAR as long as I have been before and I am hurting more. It is odd. I think that is why I had that major pain before: I was out too much before my BODY was really ready and my body made sure I knew that. Well, the past week I had been feeling great now all of a sudden I hurt again more than i have been. I want to say b/c of this, I am going to take it easy the rest of the day. I have only been up since nine thiry am, sitting and standing/walking, but I think my body is telling me I need to still take it easy. SO, off to the bed I go to lie down. I will still be here, but got to rest. Did that make sense???

Hey Mel, you've made great progress. The fact that you are listening to your body and slowing down to rest when needed, will go a long way. Good resting!
