its a little over 3 weeks now since my alif.
not sure how i feel about it all. I've been safe, no blt, short walks and rest, but i still have back pain, although the leg pains have completely gone
Im still on morphine based medication, but im just not quite as far as i'd hoped.
My length of time on my feet has increased, i can walk longer, but boy does my back let me know the next day if ive overdone being on my feet.
I know its early days, and internally my body will be red raw, but think im having a low day. the suns shining, and i want to play with my son, and i cant. its holidays here in the uk, and as a family we cant go out.
just waiting for that moment where i feel major benefit. ive been seen by physio and ive to do pelvic floor clenching for 4 weeks before we start other exercises.
thanks for reading.
