I'm heading to week 11 post op. tomorrow. At week 2 I was feeling like I could drive the car if they'd just let me. Now it seems like I have some great days and then do something (like trying that stand up hamstring stretch) and my muscles spasm in my butt, my low back and even my mid back. It puts me back on the Narco and Valium 2 times a day and takes me a good 4-6 days to come back out of it....I have to regress my walking back by about 1/2 , get cranky, have to go back to naps. Than I get going again for a week and then do something else that knocks me back the same amount of time, same situation.....it's like 2 steps forward-1 back. I'm trying to wean the brace and even that is proving difficult...I can go an hour at a time and then get like jello and need it back so it's taking weeks to wean it off. I know its a long haul, but is this the way it's suppose to work or do I have something else wrong?
If this IS the way it works, how many months out til you hit a life that's more predictable and have less steps backwards??
Need input.....feeling like I'm going to be stuck in this quasi or something else is wrong???
