[QUOTE=lovemiamibeach8;3682477]I am with you.. I'm week 5. Before the surgery I was a very active 34yr. Like they said, I notice everyday is different. One good day, on bad day.. Like me, you want your life to get back to normal and when you come to the realization that it's going to be a couple months it's almost to much to bear. I think we all feel the same... we all go through the stages of recovery. Hang in there... positive thoughts!
Thanks Miamibeach (I wish I was in Miami Beach right now - on the beach with a rum and coke and a fine cigar). I put in a call to my surgeon - he actually gave me his cell phone number after the surgery - and he said not to worry. It happens, it's part of the ebb and flow of the scar tissue moving around, and to take it a little easier today but NOT to baby it. I had put my brace back on after tossing it a week ago, he said to take it off. And yes, to going back on the Vicodin while I am still in considerable pain. He did not say I should not be putting my shoes on in this way but I will be careful in the future. I will not do it leaning on the side of the bed anymore. Long story short, a bad day in the good day/bad life of a recupeating 4 week back surgery patient. Thanks!
