OK, I am curious to know how many are still walking and how often, how far etc. When I started coming to the board there was a lot of talk about walking but I haven't read much lately.
1) How far along are you and from what surgery
2) How long do you walk for?
3) are you back at work?
Personally, I dont walk as much as I did about 10 weeks ago but I was given a heart rate monitor and I think I over did it, trying to get my heart rate up. Got a lot of new and painful symptoms so I have eased off the walking a bit and slowed down. (Put the HR monitor away for now)
I am nearly 7 months post 3 level L3-S1 fusion
When I do walk I generally do about 20 minutes, have a rest then another 20 minutes. Unless I go to the mall and there I amble for an hour or 2 just sitting when I need to.I do need to take a pain killer before I go walking or I wont last the distance.
I am not working yet
I would be really interested in hearing from everyone else.
