L4/5, L5SI microdiscectomy on 2/29. 7 inch incision and reaction to vycril sutures. It took 6 weeks for wound to close. Then, my father passed away. I flew from Colorado to New York. It was a long and difficult week.
This last week, after returning home, I feel like I making progress. I have gotten in 10,000 steps twice this week and also did a two mile hike with about a 400 ft vertical climb.
Is this progress normal? I have stiffness afterwards but, I feel much better the day after the walk and turning over in bed is getting easier. I am also down to Advil once a day. Does it sound like I am on track? Tx.
