I cant believe its been 2 weeks already,It seems like
time would go slower when you dont do as much as usuall
but it doesnt seem to stop for that either.
My back pain has decreased considerably from what it
was before surgery. my inciscion pain is gone almost
completely,Im having a burning sensation in my left leg
and some pain in the back and stomach area from my
anterior surgery. I seem like Im always so tired and
want to sleep all the time
I am taking my percocet 10-325 ABOUT 6 a day
I am walking about 20 minutes a day
does this seem normal to everyone


  • Hi,
    Glad to hear you are doing so good so soon after your surgery.
    I will be having the same surgery on June 23rd.

    Good Luck with the next few months.
    God bless

  • everyone is different. Sounds like you are doing great! Just remember to not over do when you start feeling better. Hope your recovery continues on the upward path.
  • Hi Mark,

    Sounds like your doing very well! If your pain is already better at 2 weeks than it was pre surgery, I'd say that's a success.


    Cheering you on from the cyber world,


    P.S. Just forget about bungee jumping or sky diving for just a little while longer :)
  • Mark,

    Glad to hear your update. Sounds like you are doing great. I am walking about 20 minutes per day too (4 weeks out) and that is about all I can handle but I am back to work so I am just exhausted from everything all day.

    Hang in there.
