Walking Back

Walking Back

So right now it is five days since I had my operation and I am feeling pretty good.  Yesterday I only took the pain medication twice (12 hours apart), and so far today I have not taken any.  I find myself able to sit and lie down in one position for hours on end, where for the last few years I have always been squriming around trying to get comfortable.

Two days ago I walked for 1.1 miles on the treadmill at a slow speed (no faster than 2 MPH).  After I finished that I had some nerve pain for the rest of the day, but nothing yesterday.  Just a few minutes ago I treadmilled for 1.75 miles (no faster than 2.8 MPH) and there is only minor aching so far.  I am hopeful that I will be able to keep adding to my walking, and that soon I will be able to do it multiple times in one day.

But overall, I am SOO much better today than I was a week ago.  Very encouraging!
