I had my first real endurance test with my new back this weekend and passed with flying colours. I was tasked at work with merging two Active Directories – essentially merging the backends of two separate companies. 30 hours of work with the majority of them in front of my home workstation and no sleep on Sunday night! I was a little groggy on Monday, but knocked off early, went to bed and woke up refreshed today. I had next to no back pain while working and took small breaks for physio/walking. There is no way I could have done this pre-op!
Physically demanding work and sports are still a ways out but, I’m pretty happy with this small milestone. 🙂
