2 month post op

Hi everyone, I hope everyone is recovering well from any surgery you have had. Good news, I'm doing great after hitting my 2 month post op! I walk 2.5 miles a day and wear my brace faithfully while walking and driving. I don't use it much around the house because I have a grabber and can maneuver most things with help from hubbie. I am so happy I no longer have pain due to dd of L5-S1 disk. Just this past week I have been able to stretch a bit and that gives me hope. I love yoga, and golf so that is my goal next yr! I'm hoping when I go get the 3 month MRI it will show the fusion is taking. Advice to those scared and in early post op pain, stay positive and walk! Take your time and be patient. Best of luck! It


  • It is always good to hear from people with positive experiences. Especially for newbies it is important to know that sometimes back surgery actually helps. On this site, those who are still suffering or are dealing with complications tend to stay, as they need continuing support. I am also fortunate that following a six-level lumbar (T12-S1) fusion about six weeks ago, feel like a human being with no pain whatsoever. Recovery is still taking time, as we have to follow restrictions, and work on increasing our stamina. Continue on with your successful recovery Mssy!
