My thoughts are that tightness comes with the territory on this recovery road.Every since then I’ve been slowly sleeping back on my side with my operated leg on top and of course a pillow between my legs but every morning I wake up with a lower back ache. Never had this prior to surgery and we bought a new mattress a year ago. I don’t have a backache during the day or even with movement all day just when I get up. Oh. And when I was sleeping on my back for the first month I never had a backache. So what’s your thoughts.
At just a few years behind you age wise, I understand this! The saying “Growing Old Is Not For Sissies” comes to mind. But hey....growing old is better than the alternative, right?Golden years? I don’t think so yet. My parts are wearing out.
I had problems with my lower back prior to hip replacement, and though it has mostly now, except when I do too much at my very physical job...at 3 months it bothered me alot.My one main struggle is the morning when I get out of bed I am so bent over with a major backache that lasts about an hour or so after moving.
