I have my first app. since surgery tomorrow. I think things are going well and I am hoping for driving privileges and a date to start my PT. I'm down to two 5mg oxy's per day and my pain is here and there but much better. I also think I should be back at work in a couple of weeks (I am starting to go crazy in my duplex). The wife went to Costco today and I was pretty jealous that she has the freedom to go around while I am stuck in a horizontal position. I hope everybody is doing as well as me with their recovery.
