Hi - despite some days being a bit stuck mentally, I have now realised I have done quite a few new things this week ... week 8 postop from a 2 level fusion with rods and screws, TLIF, cages, cyst removed from spinal canal, facet joint removed and another filled with a cage ...
Still getting some nerve pain down my right leg, still get really tired about six in the evening and still not walking as far as I had hoped ... but trying. Also not sleeping anywhere near as much, but making myself rest in the afternoons.
I drove the car for the first time ... not far, just locally, but fine
Tonight we went to friends for dinner for the first time .
Given up the night time Oxycontin 5mg and taking a coproxamol (Perocot?) This was also reduced from 10mg a couple of weeks ago
Given up the night time Diazepam too ... I love that stuff but glad to be able to control it well
So ... progress, hang in there everybody!
