I took a bus trip today, just 1 week after posterior lumbar fusion surgery. This page talks about the progress I have made since my surgery on Monday, June 24, 2013. It discusses the challenges that still lie ahead as well.

I took a bus trip today.

It may not seem like a real big deal to some people but it's a very big deal to me. I took a trip on the local public bus system today, just 7 days after my posterior lumbar fusion surgery on June 24, 2013. I am really pleased with the progress I am making. I thought I would be laid up for a lot longer than I have been. My sister had the same surgery done except she had L3 fused as well and she suggested that I should try to walk as much as [possible as soon as possible. So the second time they had me up at the hospital I walked to the end of the hallway and back, which was about 100 feet both ways.
The main thing I'm facing now is soreness. I wish it would ease up because I need to clean my house. My wife's back is bad too but they won't operate on hers.They say she has arthritis and it's the crippling kind. She says it hurts too bad to clean. Therefore she won't clean and I can't clean..When the chief cook and bottle washer has surgery, the house quickly goes someplace hot in a hand basket really fast! Believe me!

I'm also afraid I may be coming down with pneumonia from the operation. I'm extremely short of breath and often con't complete a full sentence without having to stop and inhale They gave me an incentive spyrometer to bring home with me. It is a thing on which I practice breathing and it is supposed to keep my lungs open. However It isn;t helping much. I had an an xray today so when I get it back it will tell the tale.

I'm not drawing attention upon myself. I'm just using my surgery as a platform to have something to write about. It also gives me a good solid support network top insure against a relapse into active drug addiction.

Use vinegar and peppermint to breath better. Just set out a small bit of vinegar and inhale it close to your nose. Gives me a relief I can't get with any other medication. Cough syrup will also let you take a full breath. I can feel it in all lobes of my lungs. Also a peppermint and honey tea is good. I have had breathing problems all my life so I learned remedies that not only will help but give you real relief. :)

Thank you all. GrumpyBear I will try your remedies. I have found that home remedies often work better than medicine.
