I am 6 weeks post-op and have had a big improvement, however I still feel pain in my lateral(outside) glute/piraformis, lateral hamstring and the most aggravating in my lateral tibia (by that bone that protrudes out of your ankle on the outside).
I did some light yard work (watering, a bit of bending pulling) and felt cured! the next day. So I decided to weedwack and mow the lawn on my rider (it was bumpy). I never felt any pain while doing this, except a bit of burning in the glute when coming back to an errect position from bending.
I am currently doing nerve glide exercises to help free the nerve and lots of walking. I ice everyday and take ibu and a half norco 2x's per day for pain.
Is your experience that doing exercises that is suppose to reproduce pain, but then go away shortly after, helps with recovery or would I be better off just doing my walking and no stretching?
I pray for all of us that suffer from these pains...emotional and physical.
Thank you, Joe
