I am about 12 weeks or so from a TLIF and made a big mistake yesterday. I went to the grocery store alone and, of course, put way too much in my cart. The clerk unloaded my basket and someone else put them in my car. When I got home I only took in the items that had to be refrigerated and left the rest for my granddaughter to bring in. But I was in absolute misery the rest of the day...had to take pain meds for the second time that day. Never, never again will I push that cart until I'm "normal" again! The price is too high. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to perform daily tasks again without risking so much pain?
By the way, I forgot what the weight limit is that we're supposed to adhere to. Is it 5 or 10 lbs?
