It’s now 6 weeks since the Spinal Cord Stimulator was implanted in my body and just as in my previous entries things are still slowly improving. The surgical pain is gone, though the device pocket is still kinda sore. There has’t been much improvement in my sitting or driving but I have been walking almost everyday.
It feels good to be doing more, to be out walking and feeling the sun and the nice summer weather. Things are going slow 34-36 minute miles, not exactly setting any speed records but I’m walking further each time. I come home sore and limping each time and my pace tends to fall off a cliff after the first mile, but i’m so happy to be able to do it.
I’ve got my eye on week 8 and being able to do more without the worry that I still have, the finish line is getting closer and I’m excited.
