Lena, I am soooo thrilled for you!!! What fantastic news! I know that feeling so well. I was only 6 weeks along when I had x-rays and my doctor came in with the hugest grin, ear to ear, just absolutely beaming as he showed me where we could already see bone growth. I was on cloud nine that day!!!
Like Michelle said, keep up the walking. I know you will. You still need to be careful, but you'll gradually get back into life now, as your body lets you. Remember you're only 3 months out from surgery, though. You really do still have a lot of healing to do. But how wonderful that you're feeling so much better!
If you start to have pain along/under your incisions, that's probably scar tissue and can be broken up by a good therapist. If it's not deep, you can even break it up yourself.
Thanks for sharing such a wonderful post. Are you folks who are waiting for surgery reading?
Yet another positive fusion story!
Keep in touch!
