I am 19 days out from surgery and all I have been told to do is get up and walk every day. I still have to use this freakin walker to walk up and down the hallway. I have a L5S1 fusion on December the 3rd and have lost partial feeling in my right leg from the knee down. I fell again last night but this time in the shower. My wife had just stepped out of the bathroom to check on one of our dogs that whimpered. Well I was trying to wash the top of my thighs and we have a grab handle in the shower that is suckion cupped to the wall. Well I had ahold of it and leaned slightly forward and when I did I couldn't hold myself and kept going forward and fell face first into the wall and down in the tub.
I think I should be doing better than I am at this point. I have to wear a leg brace if I want to get out of the house to go to the store to keep from going crazy in the house. Also have to wear my back brace as well. I know that it takes time to heal and to recuperate but shouldn't I be seeing better results to some extinct by now? I go back to see the Doctor on Jan 8th two weeks away still. Still in loads of pain and tired of sleeping all the time from the medication knocking me out.
Just wandering and confused right now about my progress or lack of I should say.
