One year after fusion surgery

Its been a long year of recovery. The horrible sciatic pain is gone, but I still cannot walk very long, or stand too long. I completed physical therapy, and was told the nerve damage I experienced prior to the surgery, would take a long time to recover from. I continue to exercise, in the hope that I will return to normal. I should mention that I am 75 years old, but have always been very physically active. Any encouraging words for me?

    Yes!! Keep doing what you have been doing, at our age we should never quit exercising. At least you are not in pain anymore. I cannot stand or walk very long either. Now that the weather is better I plan on walking every day, whether it hurts or not.

    I hope you do return to normal, it will just take time. The older we get the longer it takes.

    Take care and keep walking!!
