Well, last week was better than this week. And it's no ones fault but mine! This isn't my first picnic and I should know better than to "push" it. I was walking 45 to 50 min. at a time on fairly flat land. And that's kind of hard to find up here in the mountains. But I had a short course. And could go back and forth. Till my time was in. I wanted to do my old course that includes more hills and about 600 yds. of a good 20% grade. MISTAKE!!! My surgeon and his P.A. told me not to push things when I had told them at a earlier appointment, that I was up to 35 min. They said it would be better to do more shorter walks of 20 mi. But I never have been one to follow orders. And I have a very thick head,(stubborn)
I had cut all of my post surgery meds. out. And was back to my pre surgery, chronic pain meds. but after that, I had to do some break through meds.
I do however have great mobility. I can actually put my Merrill hiking boots on and tie them. I would recommend this type of new surgery to anyone. But it dose help not to act DUMBER THAN DIRT!
Besides the sites that I've already mentioned. Another good site is www.nuvasive.com For information.
Good luck, Jim X(
