    Welcome. I'm sorry you're having so much pain. I haven't had the surgery you've had so I can't tell you for sure if what you're experiencing is normal. No one can tell you that though because everyone heals differently. I've had other surgeries though where after a week or two I thought "gee that wasn't bad" then later on when you think you're already healed it'll hit you and you think " what in the world is wrong with me". I've learned that patience is the key. It takes a long time to heal from any surgery no matter how minor the doctors make it sound. After all it doesn't hurt them at all! I hope you get to feeling better soon and I'm sure others here that have had that surgery will be glad to help you.
    Good luck and take care
  • I also did the warehouse type work when I was much younger. I am certain that it did contribute to my back issues later in life. Please remember to lift with your legs and not your back!
