Back Problems board

Hi Di!

Hang in there!!!! Going back to work is a HUGE accomplishment :bouncing:!!! So many people I know aren't even close to going back at six months. You have to get up every 45 minutes to and hour and walk around a bit. It doesn't have to be the quarter mile but something to get the blood moving again. I find myself leaning to the right for a while then the left but nothing works better than a short walk and stretch.
I am worried about your stomach being swollen or could it be connected to (gasp) constipation fromt the pain killers. It is very common and two years after surgery I am still taking stool softeners (not laxatives) with my vicodin.

You are doing better than you were before-its just hard to see the forest for the trees right now.
