…And the best news, post surgery?

As soon as I awoke in the recovery room I realized the pain in my left leg and my left arm was GONE!! Since then there have been a few occasional twinges, but nothing significant.

The doctor warned me that it might be a “false honeymoon” what with the steroids and all the meds injected into the area – that the pain may return as the spinal cord is healing. But so far so good. Baruch Hashem! To me it’s miraculous. To be able to walk well, to use all four limbs equally well – what a bracha, what a gift!

My recovery has been a lot slower than we expected, but I am trying to give myself as much time as I need to heal without rushing things.

I am looking forward to a New Year – full of possibilities and hope.

  1. That’s wonderful!!

    Don’t forget that this was major surgery – a minor procedure for the surgeon, maybe, and not as lengthy as some, but still major for your body. Two weeks? Objectively speaking, it doesn’t sound slow from here. That you’re already able to say that parts of you are pain free that weren’t before, and you’re able to be up moving around as much as it sounds like you are. You rest so your body can continue the hard work of healing. Sometimes, it doesn’t seem like such hard work – but you’ll know, the minute you tire it out too much to focus on the healing part.

  2. Be patient and thankful. Thank G-d
