How soon after your surgery did most of you see your surgeon. I had a one level fusion and disk replacement on December 9th and I do not see my doctor until the 22nd of January.
I am starting to feel isolated. I did not see him after my surgery, he sent another doctor to the hospital. I am still wearing the aspen. I am not driving, not working and going crazy. I am scheduled to go back to work the 23rd of January (day after my appt).
Pain wise I am okay, still taking pain meds but not muscle relaxers (this is my biggest problem as I have wicked spasms, especially at night). I am not sleeping well at all and I am trying to sit more during the day to prepare for my desk job.
I don't feel like I am progressing as well as a lot of you on here. There are some that went back to work at 4 weeks and those that were driving at 2 weeks post op. I can't think of doing that as I don't know how I am progressing??
Thanks for letting me vent!
