Yesterday was a great day. Very little pain, great progress on the exercises, and lots of walking. After lunch I took my pills and (2 Percocet) with the intention of letting them come on for about fifteen minutes and then doing my work out. But instead I sat down in my chair and passed out for an hour and a half. So I made the mistake of thinking that I could cut my pills back to every 6 hours. After all I wasn’t in much pain and I was making great progress. Wrong. Today I’m paying a very heavy price and hoping I can get back ahead of the pain curve.
