I am 3 weeks post op s1/L5. Im 32.
I'm feeling fantastic, seriously.
I was pretty crap for 10 days, slept ALOT!! My parter had to do everything and I mean everything , we have 4 kids LOL.
This week, I have started to do a little more, I can hang washing (no bending), have started to cook light meals for the family, managed to do a roast a few days ago, I get very tired from this, but I'm building myself up slowly. It's doing my head in watching my house slowly turn into a bomb site LOL, I'm not complaining my hubby works full time, does all the cleaning, most meals etc, so I'm very grateful.
Stopped pain relief about 8-9 days post op,
Hope I have helped, feel free to ask me any thing else =)
