So I'm very new to this forum stuff, although I've been reading this for months. I was diagnosed with spondylolethesis back in March. PT, meds, exercises, injections...I've done it all. Finally 2 weeks ago had the fusion. Honestly...no one could have explained to me the horrific pain in those first 4 days. Yet here I sit 2 weeks out and I'm amazed. The pain in my butt is the worst from the bone graft, but I'm dealing. I am doing amazing with my PT now, 2 times a day here at home. I walk all over the house, I have been to the store 3 times, just to walk and be around people, I've very careful to never twist, bend, turn funny....I work very hard to stay focused, but I need to hear from people as far as when I'm going to feel like normal is in sight. I bought my first Harley last summer, I'm 46, my harley is my life and I'm so afraid....it will never be the same for me. I need to know that normal is achievable again....thanks for any input. Only people who have experienced nerve pain, leg pain, this surgery pain, this recovery, can possibly understand where my head is at right now....thanks!
