I am happy with the surgery, and have no left over nerve pain. The bit of pain I have is nothing compared to how I felt before going in to surgery. Sitting is the worse position for me and the doc says don't sit for more then 30 minutes anyway. This has been easy enough to accomplish. I walk straighter than I have in months and that is relieving the upper back muscle pain as well. All in all a worthwhile surgery.
The hardest part for me at this point is that my mind wants to do more then my body is allowed to do. There is no lifting, bending, twisting... Allowed. So I walk a little lay and read and my mind just says hurry up and get better. I know rest is best....
With the death of our friend and me being executor the movement restriction is a pain. I can't drive until the stitches come out and yet I need to get the paperwork started to get his stuff in order. Thankfully, my husband and son have been helping this weekend with the apartment clean out. That is not easy work and I just stay home and wait for the stuff they bring to arrive. There is a lot of paperwork organizing to be done and that is where I focus my attention. I know patience is my friend right now and I will not try to rush things.
I hope you are all doing well. Enough sitting for now for me!
