I went to my evaluation session with the PT and felt pretty good before he had me run through things. Alas, I still experience pain at the last one percent of my range and that was enough for him to say that there will be no beatings until that is gone.
So traction weight has increased and the exercise to facilitate ease of movement has become more aggressive. Maybe another month? If so, it will fall in line with his original prognostication.
In the mean time I’m finding it easy to avoid class and hang out with my wife, but I’ve been mostly working. I will say that practice in the mornings feels entirely comfortable except that I can’t do any of the yoga I normally enjoy.
During the evaluation we covered exercises I can and can’t do at the gym which was both nice and frustrating. Weight lifting is such a horrible place to keep a rigid posture. There is so much lifting at a horrible level that I’m constantly gritting my teeth when I notice I’m doing it wrong. Everything good for you has the potential to be bad for you. And everything that tastes good has the potential to be bad for you.
The best part of the recovery is that I’m taking a huge pleasure in being able to sit on the toilet and just plain bending down to pick something up without screeching in pain.
