I saw my surgeon yesterday for what was my 3 month or 12 week visit. I was a bit disappoinoted that I did not show any bone growth. He told me that it wouldtake longer than 3 months to see any. I have been using my bone stimulator faithfully every day since mid July and I wear it for 30 minutes each day.
Other than no new bone growth, everything is in place, nothing has moved and I can start bending only to a point where it is comfortable. I'm also able to go about my normal lifestyle like I had prior to surgery. All in all, it was a good report, The only issue that I still have is the sciatica pain which comes and goes. If I get off my feet and apply either biofreeze or magnilife sciatic cream after a little while it goes away.
I am so ready for the weather to begin cooling off down here so I can do my walking outside. This time of year we are also swamped with love bugs and who wants to go walking with them flying around. In the meantime I will go somewhere like the mall or big dept store to do my walking.
