I am sure most of my fellow spineys have had nights like I just did. I slept an entire 2 hours..and not in a row..lol
My back is just plain hurting. It has been hurting for a week now. Right at the surgery site.
I saw my surgeon last week. Same thing...your getting there..it is a slow process for most people...heres your off work note..and med refills.
I like my surgeon don't get me wrong. I have seen him every 4 weeks since my surgery on March 1st. This is definately a 1 step forward..2 steps back recovery. I am still feeling pretty well overall since my blood pressure has been treated.
But I am so ready for this back pain to be gone. It hurts very badly if I try and do the smallest things. So here I am at 7am bleary eyed and tired but when I tried to go lay down in my bed..my back hurt too much and I had to get up again.
Guess it is time to put on my TENS unit and take more meds..ugh..so ready to have my life back. Im home alone all week. Hubbie flew to Florida for his brother wedding. I skipped it..They are doing the Disney parks..no way I could ride the rides and walk for hours.
