Default Re: 17 months post op update.

I'm 2.5 years post op and still deal with pain as well. Not extreme pain but more discomfort, but enough so that I still use tramadol. And also experience the tightening in the chest at times, this normally comes up the longer I go between med doses.
One thing I do find is things get worse the less active I am. So just sitting around alot makes things worse. I occasionally work out, cardio stuff, weights and play racquetball and golf. I feel MUCH better on the days I do that stuff, I guess because the muscles are getting stretch and used more.

It takes time and is different for each one of us. Best of luck and hope you keep improving.
