Connie, the first couple of weeks are the worst, you will get better a little each day, but its kinda a one step forward, two backward type of thing. At about 5 to 6 weeks, you should hopefully notice a much bigger improvement. Hang in there, we're all pulling for you, and praying!

Connie - I'm so glad you are home. I hope you work closely with the doc to get your pain managed well. Hang in there - you are doing great. I hope your family is supporting you and being patient too. Keep up the good work.
