Default Re: It happened yesterday

Thanks for your reply Rod! After more time passed by I finally was able to go. Now being a tiny bit active (walking like you said) I believe is also helping.

So now I've been experiencing chest pain since this operation, and I didn't expect it to last this long. It comes and goes, but it can become particularly bad at night. Anyone else experience ongoing chest pain after their fusion? I'm guessing because things are now realigned in my body, that there might have been stretching and my body just has to adjust still. I also suffer from a bit of pectus carinatum which may or may not play a part in this.

Other than that, things are going well. I'm trying to become more active, but the muscle pain is a bother. Things will get easier though. I've noticed a big improvement from now and after I first had the operation.

Oh and I will be posting the x ray and before & after pics after my one month appointment that is scheduled on June 30th.

Thank you everyone for your continuous help and support!
