The surgery went o.k. I guess. I feel really stable now. I dont notice any pain in my lumbar with movement anymore. I only have the calf cramps and tightness with burning upon standing or walking. I walked around walmart this am for about an hour and then walked about 2 blocks this afternoon. I am hoping walking would help but hasnt really yet. I will try to walk more tomorrow. I am takinf extra strength tylenol and skalaxin. I havnt taken a perkoset for a couple of days.
