I just had surgery yesterday and am happy to say that I am not having leg pain, have had a few pains here and there but mainly with movement, re-positioning while sleeping. Had a hard time sleeping last night as movement is the main thing that causes pain at incision point. I do have quite a bit of pain at incision site but the vicoding is helping tremendously.
I am hopeful all progresses well and that the leg pain stays away. I know I have a road to travel to complete recovery but am very optimistic. Dr. warned me that since I waited for a little over a year for surgery that the nerves may be a bit mad at me for awhile.
I am hoping to go back to work in 2 weeks, I of course have restrictions but luckily I don't do a lot of bending/lifting in my occupation so will just need to be mindful. I don't go back for follow up appointment until 11/13 but will release me if I feel that I am ready.
