I wanted a journal to help answer others questions. Search my previous
posts for older updates. As of today I'm narcotic free almost a week. I had to be
Tapered down due to years of high dosages. Head is clear. Not sleepy or groggy.
Doc was awesome and super pleased at 6 week check up.God did truly bless me
Through him. My pain now is averaging a 1-2. Bad days a 3. The more I walk the less
It hurts. One hour am before work. One hour pm after work seems best. At 6 weeks I was
Cleared to 40 pounds lift. I haven't pushed that. Mostly doing cardio. Lost two pants
Sizes and 30 pounds. I feel like getting up again! After 12 week he said he will most likely
Clear a restrictions. I'm going to hit strength training then cautiously. He said I'm clear to swim,
Scuba dive, fish, hunt, etc now. I'm being very cautious. I have been blessed with new
Lease on life. I don't want to damage back.
