Day 5

Really paying for all the walking outside the previous day. Incision and muscle soreness is real. I had to get up a few times at night to walk off the pain while waiting for pain killers to kick in. Had to increase pain killer dosage — either double Oxy dose or added 500mg Tylenol to the normal dose. Had to take a muscle relaxant too. A lot less mobile today so trying to stay in bed more. Went outside and walked for 1/4 mile which was harder than the previous day. Sciatica and numbness on my right leg is getting worse with occassional shooting pain.

Good news — my stomach feels better and back muscles feel stronger and more responsive. I’m having an easier time maneuvering in bed, sitting down, and climbing stairs.
