Well, I had my first post-op visit with my neurosurgeon (who walks on water) this morning, and I've graduated!
Since my surgery June 17th, I've walked over 130 miles (yes, miles), and in part I credit this constant motion with my easy and successful recovery. My doc has prescribed four weeks of PT, 2-3 times/week, to get my core muscles strengthened; otherwise, I can return to work this Thursday (which will be 6 weeks to the day post-op). He just said to stand up for 30 seconds to a minute (at least) every half hour or so just so I'm moving and not sitting all day every day. That I can do.
Just wanted to share my good news with everyone, as I know so many times people wonder whatever happened to ....
Thank you all for your kind support and advice throughout this ordeal. You're wonderful (as is this site!!)! >:D<
I wish you all the very, very best.
