I had my 3 mo. check up from the 2 fusions and the open laminectomy on old work.
I've been really bummed out over the slow slow progress. I told the surgeon that I still can"t walk over 5 min. and the pain is still incredible. And the recovery is suppose to be much further along at 3 mo. than it is.
He said the time frame would be much longer for me because of so many surgeries, the lousy shape I was in, my age, and the amount of surgery that I had in that 1 surgery. So he said he wasn't too surprised. But that I wore the brace for so long and the muscles got way out of shape from depending on the brace for too long. No one told me I could take it off. wth!
Anyway he said I needed to get into physical therapy asap and go at it real slow. And PT was the missing link. I hope he's right!
I also saw my pain management Dr. and he was afraid that it was to soon for p.t. And advised me to quit if they hurt me at all. So, We'll see.
