4 weeks post-op

This week has not been good as far as my back is concerned. I think it started Saturday morning. I walked around my neighborhood checking out all of the garage sales, and carried around some toys and clothes. Nothing heavy, but I was hurting a bit when I got home. The rest of Saturday and Sunday were pretty standard - house work and baby time. I don't know if I over-did it playing with the baby on Sunday? I woke up Monday morning pretty stiff and having a little bit more pain. It increases as the day goes on so I worked from home Wednesday.

It's feeling better, but I'm still concerned that something might be wrong. If I walk around too much it gets irritated again and I have to lay down for a while. I have a little nerve/leg pain, but most of the pain seems to be on my spine (feels like my tailbone hurts). I go see my surgeon Nov. 1 so I'm trying to wait until then. I know he only has office hours on Thursday anyway, so I might call over there tomorrow to see if he can squeeze me in.

After my surgery it took months to feel like myself again (there are times i still have issues). There will be good days and bad ones. Try not to do too much at one time. Aleve works wonders for me. After my surgery I had problems sitting for long periods for months. It will pass just be mindful of all your movements and lifts. Hope this helps.

Thanks Caroline. :) It's so nice to know I'm not alone and that I didn't really screw it up again. I just talked to my doctor's nurse tonight and did not seem concerned at all.
