September 2015

I've searched through many pages looking for a September Buddy forum, and couldn't find a generic one... So.... I made one!

My surgery was Sept 15. I had a laminectomy , and a fusion of my L4/L5 vertebra. I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis, DDD, arthritis and generally a rotting bone that needed to be fixed!

They fixed it and I've been doing great! Often forgetting that I'm still BLTS ( no Bending, Lifting, Twisting or Stooping)!

I did have a set back over the weekend and called my doctor Monday morning. Not sure if he needs to see me or not, but the phone nurse has checked in my progress daily.

Is it possible to strain a muscle in your sleep? I woke up Friday hurting, which is highly unusual and by Satirday at 5 AM, I couldn't sit up to roll out of bed! Kept low Sunday and called Monday.

Anyone else having issues?
