Firstly, thanks to those who have asked me to keep posting on my progress. It's so nice to have people who care rather than those who just see you as a bad back whinge!
First week went really well. Making use of my adjustable desk and having plenty of walks. Managed the full 4 mike commute each way on 4 of the 5 days.
I started this week on 6 hour days with the intention on doing 8 hours by next week.
Everyone has been really supportive, had 3 week check ups Monday and X-rays which was all good.
Starting physio Monday for the hip bursitis which is probably the worst bit.
If you have just had surgery keep you chin up - the first two weeks I thought it was a total mistake then very quickly started feeling much better!!
Still a slight nag on the left leg nerve although this isn't constant so when it occurs I'm slowing right down and listening to my body.
Wishing you all a pain free weekend !
