Today I saw my spine orthopedic surgeon for yet another follow-up. This marks about 15 months since the lumbar fusion L-5. After a long discussion about a number of different things, including, yes the spasms, I left after being there a long time. I go back in 3 months for x-rays and to see if the leg spasms, low back spasms will be improved or not. If not, then a cat scan to see what is going on.
If I compare it to a year ago, definitely I am better than that. (I was still using a walker to pull myself out of bed!)
And I called the allergist and got the ok to go back for allergy shots, now that I finished the antibiotic for the ear/sinus infection. By the time they called, it was too late to go this morning. It will have to wait for Weds. or Thursday after work.
Tomorrow I see my primary care doctor. I know I did not lose the weight I was supposed to for that visit. My visit at the allergist last week showed my blood pressure had gone down anyway.
Tonight's plan. Get a good night's sleep. I did get to walk at least a mile and a half today, and went up and down stairs a few times.
After supper, I got hungry - fed the urge an apple.
