Well guys- I am home! I took a HUGE walk around the hospital floor last night. It felt so good. I used a walker, but can tell that I won't need it for too long. The only complication I had was the oxycontin (sp?) they gave me made me woozy and almost pass out. I had to call the nurses past night while standing bc I thought I was going to pass out!I was getting one every 12 hours and threw up twice before narrowing it down to the meds. I LOVED the dilontin they had me on, but made sure not to take it today bc I can't have an iv at home
However, pain is almost nonexistent! I feel tightness and tenderness at the site when I move but my back brace helps.
Being home and walking will be my bestest recovery. I love walking around and my legs, abs, and arms are already getting a workout
I'll keep ya posted!
