hi all. Thought I would add some more of whats been going on here , I had my surgery 11/28 they started around 12:30 that day my wife said they had me out around 3 little over hours . all seemed to go well. of course when you come to makes you wonder you start feeling pain and its just really not comfortable. I was kind of in and out next couple days couldnt eat didnt have any desire to want to eat. there are other things thant dont want to work well either.really the way I felt didnt want to walk set stand . just sleep. the op was on monday they sent me ta a rehab center only 3 miles from the hospital. and therpy is here they worked with me at hospital also. but since the rehab witch i feel lots of progress. my appit. has returned bowels started back therpy here is good not to hard can be from walking to setting also walking up steps and down them. my pain had went toallty away hardley any yesterday morning had to sneeze and i have a little from that so im going to pray it goes away. I thought I would kind of let everyone no how so far things are going. not bad seems to get betr, If any dont remmb what they did was a L1 thru L4 fusion bone graft lamenctomy also had cushions shot so those were repaired. as I go on will keep everyone going on progress. they also installed 8 screws and 2 long rods. any how check back fore up dates. . .
