After my setback on the July 11th, I'm back on track! I'm walking about 2 1/2 miles total each day (a morning walk and an evening walk). The prednisone made a tremendous difference in the pain in my calfs. Today I begin the reduced dosage to ween off. Other good news is that I didn't get up during the night to take percoset and I wasn't in pain when I woke up.
My surgeon and his staff have been absolutely phenomenal; I talk to his nurse every other day to confirm appropriate activities and progress. If you are in the Atlanta area, or can travel to Atlanta, I whole heartedly recommend the *edited*. I was treated for years at **edited** and felt more like a guinea pig there than a real patient. I couldn't go to *edited* before because of limited insurance coverage...
