Well I survived my first week back to work since the middle of Feb.
I am sore and had to take meds twice during my day but I made it through. I am not really any sorer than I was sitting around at home...
I am still having signif. pain at the surgical site but I am hoping that gets better. Most of my nerve pain I had prior to fusion is gone. My flexibility is slowly coming back. Since this is a desk job I am getting up and moving as much as I can. I have been using my TENS unit once I get home because I am having muscle spasms in my mid-back due to leaning forward looking at a computer.
Once I am out of training and at my own desk full time I will bring my TENS and wear it when needed..and will buy a heating pad for my desk..lol
Financially I am so relieved to be back to work. It will take me a couple of months to catch up on all of my bills but I know I can do it.
THanks for everyones support. You spineys rock!!! you will never fully know how much your kind words have meant to me over the past year.
