Hi all, so I am 23 days post-op and today I walked 2 miles outside. I couldnt believe I did it and it felt so-o good! It wasnt a fast pace but a good pace. Just wanted to share, especially for all of you who have upcoming surgeries:)

64 degrees thoracic curve, 56 degrees lumbar pre-op

Thats fantastic Melissa (from one husky mum to another). The feeling of achievement makes you feel as if you can take on the world! Keep it up.

Melissa--You must be so encouraging to those still waiting. That's a great "milestone" or two! Janet

That is so encouraging for me - as I'm truly hoping to be able to do the same at that point, which means I'll be able to be more hands on hopefully for my li'l lads!

Thank you all. Walking isnt too bad at all it is all the exercises at therapy that hurt me. I would rather walk outside any day:)
I signed up yesterday for a 5K Susan G Komen Breast Cancer in downtown Indianapolis on April 17, so that is my next goal:)
Life is great right now and I feel so blessed each and everyday that my surgery has went so well.
All of you that have upcoming surgeries I know you all will do great!!!
