It's been two weeks since the procedure. I've had some good days and some bad days, but overall things are getting better. I generally don't feel any pain when I lay down on my stomach or side (with or without pain medication). I can sit for about 30-40 minutes. After 15 minutes, the pain starts and then it gets unbearable by about 40 minutes. Standing is about the same. I can walk for a lot longer though.
Yesterday, someone asked me if it was worth it. I don't know yet. Ask me again in September. If I can ride my bike pain free, then it was definitely worth it.
