I was doing great! I was so thrilled that I had surgery and was really sorry that I had to wait so long.
I was told to wear my brace and take it off only to shower. That was almost 24 hours a day.
I went to doctor, had the 3 month, told them of my security of the belt and I would like to decrease the amount of time wearing it rather than stop. So yes, I stopped using it.
That night,,,,,,,,,,,,, oh no the pain. The next day, I was back in that belt and took it off and on for the next few. Today is my first day with out it.
My muscles, I guess have really had a hard time with this. I wonder, did I have myself wrapped too tight. Did I do damage from being wrapped 24 hours a day.
The pain has been unbearable...........the fusion site is ok.
My pain begin where the hardware went in and the Thorasic area.
Has anyone suffered after taking off belt to this degree.
I thought it would come off and all would be great.
Sometime, I think something must really be wrong. I don't think this should be normal. Am I ok??? They are saying yes, but they always do.
