I am 8weeks post laminectomy discectomy on L5. I started back to work last week for a couple hours a day. I do computer work so always sitting. I do get up frequently which helps. I am going to try and go for 4 hours in the am this week and hope to go full-time again by end of week. My question is does anyone else feel totally wiped out after a few days of just going and being on your feet or sitting all day at appointments? Basically just trying to get back into "life." I have to take a full day of laying and resting it seems like to get rejuvenated again just for everday activities. Is this normal? How long does it take to get your stamina back? My back is doing good just gets stiff and weak after too much activity. Any experiences that you have had with this I would love to hear about!
