Not sure about the Lyrica helping or not. Not sure about the weight loss or loopiness. I was only on it for three days, though. It didn't hurt. . . except maybe the bill. As for the recovery, slow going. Lot's of muscle cramps. Still can't do much of a straight leg raise. My toddler got a high fever most of the weekend and now I have some crud myself - so not much sleep being had. Grrr. I can't even remember what I was doing as far as activities at this stage during the last surgery. Maybe I'm doing about the same, but just don't realize it? I totally agree with the "you know what you can get away with sentiment". . . .50 minutes later. . . Anyhow, this post was just interrupted by my PT who has informed me that taking my child to the Zoo this past Sunday (POD 6) using my crutches to make the trek was probably stupid and I am hurting and feeling like my recovery is slow because I'm an idiot. Apparently, I should be taking more than celebrex and tylenol if I'm going to try to continue my idiot lifestyle of walking 1 mile at a time at this stage in the recovery. Y-chromosome, why must you torture me!!!
