Hey. Just wondering when everyone started to feel more like themselves after surgery?
I had ALIP on July 13 and think I should be feeling better than I am. Or able to do more than I can. I have seen that I am a bit better than I was. I can handle going out shopping for about 30-40 minutes. But usually by then I am in so much pain I wonder if it was worth it. Yet if I stay inside 24/7 I feel too caged in and get depressed.
How far should I be able to walk at this point? Should I be able to handle more than 30-40 minutes of shopping before being in tears? I tried driving a very short distance this week and MAN did it HURT. Won't be trying that again.
I know everyone heals at their own rate...but any help would be great.
I don't want to push it too far or do too little.
My first appt with the neuro since surgery is next week.
