ADR Recovery

This blog chronicles my recovery from a new type of major back surgery, Artificial Disc Replacement (ADR). I injured my back at L5/S1 when I was 9 and have always struggled with back pain, but was unable to walk after a minor car accident in ‘05. Research became my second job and with the support of my family and friends, I decided go under the knife. My intention is to keep my friends updated while I recover and help others who are suffering with back pain understand the recovery process.

Four Thousand Steps

Jeff and I were talking over the weekend and realized that during the stress of the surgery, move and recovery we completely forgot about our four-year anniversary which was May 25th, hopefully we’ll be able to go on a trip this fall to celebrate properly. It’s hard to believe we’ve been together so long… I don’t know what I would do without him. Here's is picture of us the summer we first started dating :0)

I hope everyone enjoyed Memorial Day. My Dad’s been taking me for walks every afternoon around the golf course. (I wear a pedometer all day so I know exactly how much I’m doing.) On Sunday I walked a total of 4,200 steps, which is about 2 miles!!! I wasn't even sore the next day, which was the better news!

On Monday I was in good enough shape to go out for dinner and was even able to squeeze into my jeans. I feel good and am trying to rest often and not overdo it. I still can’t believe how much I’m able to do this early…. I haven’t walked 2 miles in a long... long.... long... time!
