Well I have moaned on here often enough about stuff so thought I would balance out with some good news.
I saw my surgeon today for my 12 week follow up and x ray. He was pleased with the way my fusion is going. I have quite a bit of bone one side and not so much the other and he thinks that by 6 months it will be solid.
I am relieved as I had been suffering with a lot of pain when moving in and out of bed and was worried that I had broken something. He says it is just muscles and that I need to do more stuff. Although when I told him that when I went swimming I did 8 lengths (200m) he said that was too much to start with! I thought I was being good considering I was swimming 100 lengths most weekdays a year ago!
Does everyone find getting the balance between too much and not enough so hard? I find that in the morning I am too sore to even do my small physio exercises so tend to leave them until later in the day. Then when I do get round to it I feel that I should do extra to make up for it!
So I will continue walking each day and will keep on swimming a little bit most days. Can't wait till I am normal again. 100 lengths here I come!!
