Well had the 2 hour trip to surgeon yesterday. Did x rays and said everything looked good. I asked to see x rays and he said that there wasnt alot to see yet, that he looks at them right now for anything bad that could be happening. And he didnt find anything wrong. He did take my fentyl patches back to 3 days and use my break through oxycodnone as needed. After I run out of patches in 21 days, he will then see how I am doing and go one more month of 75 for 3 days and next time maybe go to the 50.
He said with everything I have been through,if he writes a text book I wilkl be his first chapter, that for all the stuff I have been through, things are going well. Also gave me some exercises for my claf muscles casue they are so tight. So... so far so good. Next visit is in 8 weeks, just keep doing walking and resting I guess.
