I just came from my first checkup after surgery on 7/13/09. The doctor was pleased with how well I'm doing, and I must say I agree. He looked at my x-rays and said everything looks right on track.
He offered me PT, but said the choice was mine and that I didn't HAVE to go. I chose not to, with my fibromyalgia I've been through so much PT that I can mostly carry on by myself.
Hope everyone's having a pain free day!
