Is it just me or is anyone else out there clumsy after surgery????? I mean seriously....almost 2 months post ACDF and I've a walking accident lately.
2 weeks ago, I got hit in the head with my trunk dooor for our Jeep. Not the highlight of recovery. over this weekend, I went to look into a top/bottom washer dryer. The connected type. When I leaned over (which I think I'm not supposed to do) I hit my head on the dryer...duh. You'd think I'd get it by now. But in the past few days, my left leg has been shaky. I have pain in my left knee and leg and walking leaves me limping. My hubby looked at me oddly yesterday but didn't mention. I see him watching, wondering if he's thinkiing what I am. What the heck is going on????? Added to that, we went to see some old friends yesterday at a diner. Someone made a joke and hit me in my left arm hard enough to make my neck snap to the right. No wonder my arm is in spasms and my hand is tingling!!!!
I'm wondering if this is just me? I'm not clumsy by nature. Well, I trip coming up my steps once in a while but this is ridiculous!!!!! Could the recovery be messing with my cooridnation? I guess the vicoden doesn't help either. But I only take then 3 times a day and only when the pain is more than I can manage and have a regular (recovery) day.
And hey...I so love my new spiney family!!!!!!
Any advice or fellow clumsy spineys?????
