Back Problems board

Good morning Paula! Yesterday (Sunday) I had a very good day. As a matter of fact, I only too two Tylenols in the morning and that was it as far as meds. I am still having problems sleeping and depend on Tylenol PM to get some rest. This morning I woke up a little earlier than I should have, still groggy I think from the Tylenol PM. I think that will go away once I get something to eat (I am headed to Starbucks after this :).

The pain is still there but bearable and when I am sitting/lying in one position, it doesn't bother me at all. It's when I get up or have to turn in bed - then I am reminded that I've just had major back surgery. But I walk, I twist, I lift within reason, I do stuff around the house that's sensible....in short, I am not babying myself. I guess one of the worst things is the sheer boredom of being home day after day, you know the drill. I am not one for daytime TV and you can only read so much. This is now Week 5.

But the real good news is that the major discomfort from that spasm on Saturday is gone. That one was a little scary and I am now careful how I put my shoes on - 'never sit on the side of the bed so the mattress slopes down and throws my back out of gilter.

Now how are YOU doing? R.
