I can't believe it has been two weeks since my surgery. I am up and around faster then drs. thought. Went back to see my surgeon at 1 week instead of his suggested 3 weeks. He thought I was doing so good that I didn't even need cardio rehab. Just start walking more and more each day and week. Very hard for me to sleep at night, can only sleep about 5 hrs before my back really hurts since I can't really sleep in my usual positions. Friends and family have been great.
