Wow! You're driving soon, too! Embrace the brace til the healing is complete. ((((hugs))))
How quickly I found that out, Bev!! I also felt so much better after surgery -- it was amazing. Well, I didn't feel so darn amazing after I painted that darn door LOL! I will try to remain project-free for the next three months. It may kill me, however!
I didn't have a fusion - that's why I can drive so soon. I just had a herniated disc repair. He didn't want to fuse ---- yet (his words - something to look forward to)
