Today marks 1week since my L5S1 spinal fusion. I have been wearing my brace any time I am out of bed. I have been walking a little further each day. Everything seems to be going very well. I am only taking Tylenol for very little pain. Is there anything else I can do to help with recovery? Also, when sleeping do I need to sleep on my back or can I sleep on my side? As you can see I am a little nervous about doing the wrong thing. Thank you for any information to help ease my hesitations.
