Back Problems board

I think your activity level sounds great. You are moving and doing things, yet napping and resting each day. Similar to how I did and I am about 4 weeks ahead of you. I worried all the time that I was doing too much, but have had two good reports from the doctor and get to take off my brace in two weeks! that will be under three months!

As for the itching - I had it too! Benedryl and OTC cortisone cream. If they do not work, consider possibility of a yeast infection, especially if you were on alot of antibiotics in the hospital. That wasn't it for me though. Mine was an allergic rxn to the brace. Zyrtec has helped tremendously.
Good healing!!!
