Having read many posts here prior to my surgery (TILF...I think thats what it's called) I was pretty hesitant. Surgery was about noon on Monday and I was up walking by 4pm. I came home around noon the following day. I have been showering without assistance, doing light housework, walking every day and walked a mile today. The only time pain is a real issue is when I'm switching positions. Laying on my back and sitting up in bed is uncomfortable so I avoid those as much as possible. Much of the numbness and pain in my left leg are gone. The surgeon told me to give it time for the pain and numbness to totally resolve. Issues using the toilet were not problems all. I'm decreasing my pain medications slowly and hope to be off soon. I could not be more pleased with how things are progressing so far
