my pain is a little better. It comes and goes. I did a lot of stuff around the house. So will see how it goes. Not sure if I should stop the Valium yet or not. I see the ortho dr. Friday so will see what she says. At least I haven't needed any Percocet in a week. Good sign. My muscle tightness is always after therapy. Luckily therapy ends with stim and a message. I just started driving so things are looking good. I was told out of work 3 months which would have been Dec. 11th. Now the Surgeon says April 12th.
