Last week my surgeon told me that there was something magical about 4 weeks and 6 weeks. It’s not that I didn’t believe him, but I am amazed by the difference a week made. I’m not saying I am 100%, but the pain is significantly better. I went from needing regular tramadol and tylenol to nothing almost overnight. My swelling hasn’t changed….I’m still pretty swollen by the end of the day. Because of the swelling, I did add back the mobic as an anti-inflammatory. Luckily the walk to my office doesn’t feel like a marathon anymore, but more like a 5k. My numbness hasn’t changed…it’s still super weird!
Other than that….I have PT Friday…more for my neck/back than anything else! I don’t start hernia/hip rehab until 6-8 weeks!
