With the help of the Percocet I was able to sleep alright and make it to the bathroom with out excessive pain from my mishap yesterday. Today the back is sore in the vicinity where it struck the railing but I’ve been able to manage the pain with Motrin. As an experiment this morning, with the Percocet still in my system, I managed to do 40 pushups. However, as I promised my wife, my doctor and myself, I’ve basically been taking it easy today. I did take a half-hour walk on the cutches with my wife to take advantage of the clear but quite cool weather. I see the doc on Tuesday for my first official post-op appointment and I’m sure he’ll inspect the incision; that’s why he put me in a splint and not a cast. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the healing is going well. The faster the wound heals the sooner I can get back in the pool. I hope everyone is having a good weekend and that all of your brackets are intact.
