I guess I should count myself lucky that I haven't taken any spills in over 3 years. This morning I was outside trying to wrangle the dog back into the house when I missed a step (only 2 steps going from pathyway to driveway.) I think I missed the first step and landed half on my butt (one cheek) and caught myself with both palms. The skin on the palms are a little scraped, and I think I'll probably get black and blue on one cheek (LOL). I went into the house half in tears because I think I scared myself so much. My back felt a little jarred, but ok, I thought, so 5 minutes later my friend picked me up and we went to the gym for my zumba class as planned. I felt a little tight on one side of my lower back so after I came home I took an Aleve, and I've been fine.

I remember Pam, who used to be around here when I was new, always saying how she fell on her butt the day she came home from the hospital, and was just fine. That was a comforting thought to me. I'll try not to be such a klutz in the future, but I've always been klutzie since I was a kid.

Anyone else have falling experiences post-surgery?
