Well, everything was going fine until I had a bit of a setback yesterday afternoon. I was lying down for about 30 mins and got up to grab some stuff out of my car. Nothing strenuous or difficult. As I exited the car, my back decided to spasm. This is the third spasm since the op(two happened on the night of the op). Man did it hurt. I couldn’t find any muscle relaxers, so I jumped into a hot shower as quickly as I could… after spending a good 20 minutes in pain on the floor. Immediately post shower, I cracked a beer and was feeling better shortly thereafter. It’s still a little tight today and I really don’t know what set it off! Stupid backs.
I’ve been off Tylenol for a few weeks now and will probably take some preventatively today.
I’d also like to note, for any of you potential ADR candidates, that I have some odd clicks and feelings in my back every once in a while around what I believe to be the facets. No pain, just a different feeling. The clicks scared me at first because they happened more often, but I think it has to do with the joints getting used to their new height and interaction above/below. The odd feeling and clicks seem to be dissipating as I heal.
