I just looked at the calendar and realized that today is 3 months. Holy crap! I can't believe it's been that long.
My surgeon switched my pain meds around on me. He wants me off the Percocet (even though I have been working with my pain management doctor on getting off of it slowly) and he told me to take Celebrex instead. Today is my 2nd day on the Celebrex and I am not liking it one bit!! My back is now hurting, aching and just feeling really sore. It hurts!
I am winding down on physical therapy as well. Partially due to my insurance only approving a set amount of visits, and partially because my therapist thinks I'm doing very well and can do a lot of it at home. So I'll be going 2x a week for a couple of weeks and then 1x a week. To be honest, not seeing him a lot is scary to me.. it means I'm almost all on my own!
In addition to being more physically active, I've been reading lots of books lately. I've had to go to the hospital with my dad for some of his procedures (for those of you who didn't see my other post my father has been diagnosed with bladder cancer) causing me to sit/stand for hours at a time. It was worth it to be there for my dad but it took it's toll on me for a couple of days afterward each time.
So that's it I think. I just wanted to post a little update saying where I'm at in recovery because I know there were some others who had surgery right around the same time as me. I hope you guys & gals are doing well!
