So glad you’re already feeling better with less pain. Yay

i don't understand about what you talking


From: KSCarolyn


I'm so excited.  I can drive now.  I drove all over my neighborhood just to make sure I would feel confident driving in traffic.  I don't think I have driven my car since January.  Other people had to drive me around because of the pain of sciatica and my back.  I'm still using my walker because of my bad left knee.  It is painful to put all my weight on that leg so it has interfered with my PT sessions.  I have to wait 2 more weeks before I can get a steroid shot in that knee.  The doctor said I have to wait a full 3 months after my back surgery to get a steroid shot.  So in two weeks you better watch out.

Yay!  Great progress!  I don't know what I would do if I couldn't drive myself to where I need to go.  Driving gives you such freedom and independence.  Congratulations.

That is such fantastic news!  Being able to go where and when you want .. being independent.. is empowering.

Congratulations on being able to get behind the wheel and have the freedom of zipping around. Makes  you feel like a grown-up again, doesn't it?  Nine months was a long time to be so dependent and I am smiling to think you are a free woman again.

(When I had the broken arm I really resented having to ask DH to be my chauffeur ... )

super! I bet that feels really wonderful...

I still don't drive (if I HAD to I could for a short distance) - I am still too dizzy. Especially when the  dizzy spells are random. I am hoping it goes down enough that I can drive again sometime..

Sounds like you are getting tuned up and ready to go!!! Glad you are driving again. Being able to go when and where you want is something we take for granted till it is taken away.
