So Surgery day has come and gone.
The first 3 days were tough, but then my neuro made my rear thing spasms stop. After that I was up walking with and without a walker and doing some stairs.
Neuro said there was much much more nerve compression than any of the multiple MRI's ever showed which made me feel better and or like less of a per surgery complainer.
Now I have been home for 2 days and just put about .3 miles on my pedometer at lunch and will do more at dinner.
Everybody has to do what works for them but minus the spasm issue that was resolved just after surgery. I feel SO much better.
Not gonna lie the first ~3 days are tough mentally and via pain.
After that every moment forward has been great. I even voluntarily gave up my pain pump I felt so good.
For those reading and on the fence remember many in forums have had bad luck which is why they are hear.
Not everybody has bad luck, many do just fine. I feel wonderful about my choice and am glad I did it.
Goodluck to all
