I believe there are a number of spineys here that are neaar or just past the 3 month mark, give or take a week or two. I thought it mnight be interesting to compare recovery notes. (Certainly that includes people beyond that point who recall where there "were" at the 3 month mark.) Who is working and for how long? Pain levels? Walking and/or other exercising? And any other issues like sleeping? Emotion? Pain meds.
I am working at a desk for no more than 4 hours a day, although I have some days that I have trouble making 3 hours. I'm not nearly back to normal and I think I'll have to redefine my new "normal." Still on about 20 mg. Lortab a day (5 mg every 5 hours) but it's taking an effort sometimes to keep it that low. Still toss and turn like mad at night. Energy level is about where I thought it would be. My emotions are still up and down. Sometimes I just get so angry with my body's inability to get well as fast as I want it to. Walking about 1.5 miles a day but I'm not ready to increase it.
How bout "ya'll?"
