I'm a month out of fusion surgery and I feel fantastic! No sharp pains, and the only med I'm on is Tylenol when needed.
I'm not scheduled to see my doc until three weeks from now, and then back to work 10 days after that. The only thing I'm not happy about is I'm unable to sit in a chair for more than say 15 minutes at a time. I have to get up and walk around a bit to get some relief. Believe me, it's not the sharp pains I had before surgery, it's just kind of achey after sitting for a bit. For those of you who had fusion, what was your experience with sitting soon after surgery? Were you advised on how long to sit?
Also, when were you given the go-ahead to drive? This restriction is no fun, especially if you live alone! :W
Lastly, thanks to all of you for the wonderful info you provide on this website. I felt so good about my knowledge and preparation before my surgery. You good people made the difference! O:)
