7 weeks post op fusion l5-s1
No real guidance from dr. On walking regiment
I know i over did it today i have been horizontal on ice all day
I usually try and walk 3-4 times a day and have gradually got myself up to .50mi each walk
Is this too much?
I have had nerve pain going down both my legs to my feet since the operation. Had this same nerve pain before surgery
This morning I first walked .54mi then i stretched my self to .85. This is the one that got me
At noon i took a 5mg oxycodone just to ease the lower back pain. Wow did this send me for a loop ( i dont think it mixed well with my lyrica (which i had taken 6hrs earlier).
My meds are now lyrica 75mg x2. And was just put on amytripteline 25mg at nite i am not taking any pain meds on a daily basis
Thanks for listening
Look forward to your input
