Well, today I am officially 6 weeks post op. Overall, my recovery has been easier than I expected. I am back to driving and most other activities within reason of course. My incision looks like a jagged red line, but isn't bad at all. With the rainy weather we've been having, I've been really achy.
On Wednesday I will have my 2nd post-op appointment. I will have new xrays and hopefully be released back to work.
I am concerned about work because I still don't seem to have my energy level back. I get so tired after doing anything at all. I am a 3rd grade teacher so when I go back I have to be on my game. I don't do a lot of sitting at work as you might imagine. I am going to ask the NS's opinion and also ask about possible returning with 1/2 days at first. In that way, I can get a nap if necessary in the afternoons. ;o)
Anyway, overall, I think I am a success story so far. Just thought I'd share!
