Hi, as its going on 2 months post op for me after 7 level fusion. Pain is still there, quit high to. Back is still numb. Have stabbing pain. Standing and sitting can be tolerated for short periods. And as I read some other post, Just want to here how you are feeling. How you get through your day. Like they say, misery likes company. But really just want to here what others are feeling and how they deal with it. I was hoping for a faster recovery, was told 3-6 months. Have a friend that had her knee replaced, up and walking same day, after 1 week no pain, and walking good? She looks at me like? You being a baby over your pain. ( never said it, but can tell) Some family and friends I think are tired asking how do I feel? Stopped at work to say hi?( Im a carpenter), And they say you look good. But I tell them it just hurts really bad, to do anything. So how is your day, I would like to read it, Thanks.
