My mobility continues to get better. I sat in my desk chair most of the day again, but this time it was for telework. By the end of the day, I was getting up and down with little trouble. I could lean forward for a good while without pain.
I started feeling better just before midnight on Saturday. I had to wake up every 60-90 minutes to pee. The constipation abated and I made it to dinner out with family and friends Bob and Ben.
The pain whenever I moved was worse this day. It was rather difficult to get up and walking was only done very slowly. I've not been eating so much but constipation from the pain killers bumped my weight up unexpectedly. It's hard to believe in retrospect that I was able to get in Peggy's car the day before, but I guess that was the pain killers. I did it again this day to see my mom and to stop at a place to try to get the bike rack off of Peggy's car--it's rusted into place in the hitch.
On pain killers, I didn't feel so bad Thursday night and most of Friday. It did feel more difficult than leaving surgery 3 years back. I remember some of that night, but not much--slept mostly on my sides. Peggy said I was out of it. On Thursday, I managed to get in Peggy's car so we could go pickup Samantha and Max from their respective camps. All the small bumps in the road hurt.
I had a second back surgery this day. It was said to go smoothly. It was to be the mirror image of the procedure I had 3 year back on my right side between L4 and L5. The piece of broken cartilage that had been causing pressure on my nerves and radiculopathy in my left leg, was said to be large. The surgeon used the previous incision and reached over from the right side to get at it. He said that over the coming days I'd be hurting, especially sitting in a car as is planned. The walking however is supposed to be good physical therapy.

Bicycling (Commute) 6:43  1.41 mi (4:46 / mi) +21m 4:33 / mi
From the Bethesda Metro Station to Northfield Rd. I had visions of trying to do a run after work but for the 3rd day in a row, I worked late. At least I got in some kind of workout. I know it might be the last in a while.
