I am a newbie here, but not a newbie to back problems. On March 27th 2014 I had fusions on L4 and L5 and then L5 to S1. I also had instrumental support with 2 rods and 6 screws.
What I am very afraid of is the amount of movement I have had to have since about 2 weeks out of surgery until present which is just 6 weeks out tomorrow.
One week after surgery, 3 of my grand children had to move in with me. They are 12, 8, and 5. I have had to bend many many times, just to care for these babies. It does not cause me pain when I bend, but the following day my pain might be worse.
What I am so scared of is that I am hurting my recovery.
If you do not have pain when you are doing whatever movement your doing is it ok? I really need some advice here.
Could someone give me advice.
PS. There is no other choice for me to have my grand children at this time, so having someone else care for them or me getting help is NOT a possibility.
