Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
Now that the family and travel issues are a thing of the past #:S Im just curious about a few of my recovery symptoms. I am nearing three weeks post op L4-S1 fusion
I dont visually swell, I never have and I dont bruise real easy so its hard to tell if I am injured or if something is wrong. When I blew out my knee it didnt swell at all, and after surgery on my knee I had no swelling, nor did I swell after wisdom teeth, and barely bruised after this fusion. So like I said its hard for me to judge.
My forward ROM is aweful, I am so stiff it feels like I had the strongest rubber band possible attached and it just wont bend forward very well (i am still on BLT restriction but this is ridiculous on forward motion)
Second I feel like I am now a Transformer. When I stretch,like arching my back with arms over head or move its like my back could change into a car. Its like I feel the hardware. Am I feeling it or am I feeling inflamation. Does that feeling go away?
Any input would be great, I dont know really what to expect and feeling like a giant lego isnt something I am used to. thanks alot
