Wow, I'm 5 days post op from my secound micro and finally I can get comfortable. It was very ruff at first but I slept for a whole 7 hours in a row last night, and when I'm laying down I have no leg pain at all, and minimal back pain. I walked around the block once today and seemed to do fine and have been on my feet most of the day with minimal pain. I'm still on the pain meds but I think thats normal. My back does seem very tender and swollen and kinda gets a stabbing pain like before surgery and the only nerve pain I seem to get is in my heel and foot which hurts a bit but hoping that it's going to go away for good here soon.
I'm really looking forward to a good recovery because it's just getting spring outside and the sunshine is out and I have felt so bad for so long that just knowing that I'm improving everyday now is helping me so much. I don't want to overdue things but I want to get to PT and stretching ASAP to prevent scar tissue as much as possible. I'm thinking about going for another walk but well see I guess. I think that I'm recovering very well already things just feel different and better and I meet with the Dr. in 2 days to see what he thinks. Thank you to those of you who put me in your thoughts and prayers it must have helped and I will continue to use this site and try my best to share my knowledge and experience to help others in need on here. Thanks again, and God Bless! Dane
