So, I’m back to work, busy as a bee,  and loving it. I have a great class this year and it feels awesome to be back to my “real life”.  My back has been sore since returning to work but last week I actually threw it out and was unable to sit, stand, or walk so I was out of commission for a few days. I saw the doctor and he realigned it but I still spent the weekend in pain. (My heating pad and tennis ball to roll on were never far away!)

I had a fill on Monday, bringing me to 630cc and while I’m sore from it and get twinges of pins and needle squeezing episodes, it’s not a constant pain. The PS is happy with my progress and while I’m not quite symmetrical, he said that it will be fine when I have the exchange. He had his trusty tape measure out and was measuring this way and that.

I saw the doctor for my back again yesterday and it’s starting to feel a bit better but I won’t be running any marathons anytime soon, that’s for sure. Hopefully, it’s healed soon and I can get back to business.

I went for a fill on Monday (09/13/10), and so far so good. Since I’m back to school I was a bit worried since I haven’t worked since my PBM in February and I was worried about being in as much pain as I was the first time around.  I’m super happy to report that the fills are actually bearable this time and I’m able to manage the pain with just the prescription Motrin so I’m fine to work. It may be because I’ve already been through the initial expansion or due to something else, but don’t care why, I’m just happy that I’m not in agony. I’m uncomfortable but that’s nothing compared to being in pain.  Here’s where I stand at 500cc.
