  • I like Pebbles reference to "professional patients" That's awesome!!!!

    I don't have much experience with what your going through but glad you have joined the spiney world I've found it life saving as only you guys know how much back issues suck.

    It hasn't been very long since the revision take it easy it's hard to not be patient but post-op it's necessary. As long as you and your doc are working together, you trust him, he is open and honest with you and your comfortable then stick it out.

    You may get to a point where that's not the case at which point you might want a second opinion from a doc not affiliated with the one you've got.

    Take it easy it's very early try to walk as much as you can if your doc has given you the green light for that.

    Take Care friend
