after getting home last night I was stiff as a board. still am but at least can move a little. had to travel a 250km odd round trip to get it done. early signs arent bad, but they have told me I will need at least another 3-4 operations like this to get reasonable results without fusing. basically this is buying me time instead of getting the full fusion, right now with kids and the wife pregnant I cant afford to be held up in bed for weeks like the recovery period of a fusion is.
anyways, should find out how it went in a couple of days when the sensativity of the post op pain starts to settle down some. thank god for pain killers! :D
