Hi everyone, I'm new to this whole back surgery thing. I am 3 weeks out from surgery and I'm not sure where I should be.
I am 41, mother of 3 and fairly active. I'm unable to sit straight up , I'm still slightly favoring my right ride as I walk. I tire quickly.
I refused pain meds after the 5th day after surgery. I was on dilaudid 2mg every 4 hours. I didn't like the effects it had.
I still have pain on my right side but not so much in my back , rather the top of my butt and on my right side. My husband seems to think I should be up vacuuming, and able to entertain. I should be out walking around and doing things around the house. Is that where I should be?
Am I being to cautious?
