I had my 8 hour surgery on June 5 and came home on June 8. My recovery has been smooth. My family made sure I got my percocet every 4 hours. On Thursday night I had an episode if vertigo and was really out of my mind for a few minutes. I decided to slow down on the percocet. My spine nurse advised I could switch to vicodin.
What a beautiful world it is without my brain being clouded. I have started to walk outside and do a lot more fir myself. I have some incision pain and some hip and leg pain. Before the surgery my left front thigh was numb now the right thigh is numb also. Doc just shook his head about that.
Almost 2 weeks post surgery I am doing great
