I saw my spine surgeon today. He told me i could do what i like and to start physical therapy. I am to judge what i am doing by the pain level it causes. I told him it always hurts when i bend over. But i am allowed to bend at this point,. He also said I could start hiking. He said i have to live my life. I hope it goes well although i do not have time to test it out tomorrow. Darn. I will just have to time the pain medicine correctly for hiking. My dog will also be thrilled.

A little more resting the back after going all afternoon and time to get help putting the Christmas tree lights on.

He also said i could get the ESI's for my lumbar area every 3 months. I already am looking forward to the next ones in March.
