I have great news, I think. I'm going back to work Monday, almost 3 months from my TLIF. I'm excited, and scared. My job isn't easy and I'm scared I'm not going to be able to do it. I get paid very well and I really don't want to change jobs. There is nothing around here that pays as well. Anyway my PT and Dr think I'm ready to try it. It is only 3 days then 2 weeks off. If it doesn't go well they will put me back on medical leave and work more on weakness.
I will get to see all my peeps again. I haven't seen most since I've been off on leave. A few I've had lunch and stuff with. Guess you find out your true friends during this kind of thing too.
Can you tell I'm all over the place with emotions. If anyone can suggest things to help I would appreciate it. Since no ibuprophen I'm worried about muscle pain. In my job I eat them like candy for a variety of other pain issues. Anyone have any substitues? Anyone try BioGel stuff?
