I think I have been a little to aggresive as I am in some pain now. I felt so good just 3 weeks post op that I went back to work after 3 1/2 weeks (part time). Everything was OK until at 6 weeks I went to 8hr days. I really under estimated how many times I get up and down,and bend and twist every day. So now I have intermitant tingling in my left cheek, and pain from my lower back into my hip and groin. I do have an intermittant slight numbness on the bottom of my left foot (less than 5% of pre surgery) possible nerve regeneration ?? I felt so good after 3 weeks, so I'm a little disapointed, but 10 weeks is still somewhat early on.
The surgeon said everything in the x-ray's looks perfect,
and that I need to dial it back a little. I will confess that I have been active, but I have not done anything to foolish. I went to the auto show (too much standing), and the sportsshow (too much standing again). The Doc has me starting PT tomorrow, I'm curious to see what I will be doing. I know I should have taken more time off, but work is just crazy right now. I should have listend to that little voice that kept telling me "You're going back to soon" (that little voice belongs to my wife). I still have high hopes that this will be a success,and I will be pain free for the most part. I see the Doc again May 12th,and I think I will find out if a fuse is starting or done??
