7 weeks post op

7 weeks today......every time I think I am completely better, I realize that I still have a long way to go.  I still get muscle spasms in my back, after walking for just a few minutes my muscles tighten up.  The thigh muscle is still sore, the nerve still bothering me.  A simple day of just doing a few things completely exhausts me.  I am not sleeping well.  I feel like THE THREE BEARS.  One bed is too hard, one bed is too soft, and I can't find the one that's just right. 

Using Tylenol for pain control but doesn't seem to help at times, I tried to get myself off Tramadol but I think I will need to rely on it for a while yet.  Heating pad helps with the tight back muscles.

Physical therapy tomorrow.
