I just can't believe how well I am doing. I woke up this morning with hardly any pain in my back at all! It's just the right leg that is still bugging me though. Last night my right leg was sort of numb and this morning I still have a sensation and mild pain down that leg. According to the doctor it is normal and should go away in a month or two...I guess we'll see.

Last night we had some people over for pizza after a sports game at our high school and I think I did too much around the house because I was feeling achey all over, but this morning I feel fine.

Anyway, I just thought I would post my progress again because I am doing so well just 16 days after my fusion.
