I have been having a rough time with still having pain and being flat exhausted. My surgeon hasn’t been a lot of help so I’m hoping someone here can shed some light. Here is the situation...
I’m 51 yrs old had T4-S1 w/pelvic anchors in July. I am my only financial support so went back to work part-time (4-6 hour shifts) as a cashier. Yes I am standing this whole time. By end of shift I am wiped out. It’s definitely taking a toll as I am in a fair amount of pain constantly some days worse. I have applied for disability help but have been told not to count on it.
I’m just curious if anyone has any advice to help me get through this. I know walking is key but I am so tired by time off work I go home rest for a bit then get up and do whatever chores need done have supper go to bed. I just feel like I should be further along than I am and feel better than I do.
