Today is my 6 month mark, and I honestly can't remember feeling this good for 5+ years. It has been months since i've had to take regular pain medication. I take maybe one darvocet a week, and that's only due to having classes all day on Wednesdays (you'd think with all the tuition I pay they'd be able to afford comfy chairs). I started back to school full time in January and am not having any problems at all (cept for the Wed classes). I have had about a month of PT. I managed to slip and fall flat on my back a few weeks ago. I was really sore for about 2 weeks but i'm now back to feeling no pain at all again. I still have the occasional nerve pain in my legs, but only when im walking or on my feet all day long. I only wish my dr had done 2 levels for my first surgery instead of 1. Maybe i'd have felt this good long ago.
I'm wishing the best of recoveries to everyone else on here!
