Well, had 2 level alif on Wednesday, Dr. Said it was a textbook case. Was released today and have made it home. No pain in the back but where the incision is and the area around hurts like you would not believe. Made it without a PCA pump and only had 2 shots of morphine all the time I was there. Took a shower last night at the hospital then walked the halls for a bit. Funny visit with nurse aide, she says I am one of the few men that understands what a c section feels like, lol. I am off work for the next week and depending on how I do maybe back to limited work next Monday.
Thanks to everyone sharing their experianances and mentally preparing me.
