hi all, had my 6 week check up today, doc did NOT xray me, that is going to be in another 3 months??? why the wait? i do not know.
H e is pleased with the healing and says i can drive again if i feel able to, thank goodness!! i can start to do some B L T although nothing strenouous, and i should be able to go back to work in another 4 weeks, the left leg pain has all but gone, still get occasional twinge but that is just settling, however my lower back is another issue, it was doing good at first but now it is constantly aching, not enough to take pills but enough so i know it is there, incision is still quite sore, and all through my lower back and butt is sore, doc says there is nothing he can do for the back pain, it hopefully will settle to a dull pain, but i am gonna have to live with it for the rest of my life, the main reason for the fusion was the leg pain and spasms, and it was only 50/50 that it would do anything for my back pain, which it does not seem to have done,!!
but i am a strong person, and i will overcome this, i mean let's face it, i am 34 with 3 wonderfull kids and a great hubby, so i do not ahve it so bad, i can do this!!!
I think if i tell myself that often enough it Will come true!! Enough of me going on now, hope you are all as well as can be expected x x claire x x
