Hi everyone,
This week was the turning point... I feel A LOT better than the last couple of weeks! yay! I still have pain but I have been reducing the pain meds as needed.
My doctor wants me to go see him in two months and I can start weening off the brace at that point.
Speaking of the brace, I really feel that I need it when it comes to pain, but I'm also afraid of muscle atrophy...
I guess my doctor knows better.
I hope everyone is healing nicely!
