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.
Stiff from walking post-surgery
The instructions from my Dr. are that I can walk after the suregery. Nothing else.
Walking is great. I am happy to be walking again. Now my legs are starting to get some sore muscles. I'd love to stretch, but won't.
The one thing that worries me is that my left hip flexors are so tight that they pull my knee and are causing knee swelling. I had this problem before the disk herniation. I'm being smarter and not focusing on adding distance all the time and just walking. I think that helps. I also think feeling the sore muscles is s sign of healing; they were probably there before.
I have my two week followup tomorrow, so I'll ask, just wondering if anyone else noticed sore muscles? When did you get cleared to stretch?
