I am 7 weeks post lumbar 4-5 fusion. I am walking a mile most days and am not taking anything more than a tylenol.
I have good days and bad. I guess I just wonder if anyone
else has swelling around the hardware...not all the time.
I guess it is jsut when I have overdone it. I would be
interested to know how much of the time someone at approx
this week in time recovering is up and doing "stuff" around
the house, etc. walking at the gym. I would say I am up about
6-7 hours a day and then in eve- Im resting my back on the
couch. I'm trying to get a feel for this-it is so depressing
to have a couple really good days and then two bad ones. I have been progressing. It probably is the same question everyone has! Be interested in hearing from anyone on this .
