Since my surgery I have had a really hard time staying on track. I have been eating sugars for a couple of days after dinner; cookies, ice cream, caramel popcorn. I don’t know what has happened.

Maybe I’m bored. I am in recovery from this surgery, which is proving to be quite painful. For the past couple of days I have had a migraine headache.

I thought maybe my high blood pressure was causing the headache, but now I’m beginning to think the pain is cause the rise in blood pressure.

During this initial recovery period I’m supposed to be taking it easy; not supposed to lift anything weighing more than 10 pounds. This whole thing just seems to have knocked me off my game. My mind is back to eating out of Borden.

The total time for the fusion to heal is supposed to be about a year. I won’t be released to exercise or go to the gym until I see the surgeon on July 5th. He’ll x-ray my neck to see if things a re still in place, and healing correctly. I hope the pain starts to decrease soon.
