      Days 5 and 6:

      Combining days 5 and 6 since they were New Year's Eve and New Year's Day lol. I feel like I'm definitely over the hump. Everything is improving a lot each day. The pain and overall soreness is pretty much gone. I still get tweaks here and there if I move too fast or turn a certain way, but nothing horrible. Going to the bathroom feels normal again. No more uncomfortable peeing. Still can't push when taking a number 2, but the pain and soreness is gone.
      I've cut out the Miralax and colace, but still use the sugar free Metamucil every night.

      I can get up and down on my own now and walk around more freely. I can still tell when I get close to overdoing it though. I walked outside some and could definitely tell when I needed to come back in. I've been sleeping propped up, but switched back to lying flat last night which is much more comfortable. I couldn't sleep very well propped up, but now that I'm getting a better night's sleep I'm hoping my healing speeds up even more.

      The doc said I could drive if I felt up to it after a week, but I think I may wait another day or so before I attempt that. I have a truck and not sure how it's going to go try and climb up in that lol.

      Day 7:

      Finally reached the one week post-op mark. I got to say today is been the best day so far. Virtually pain-free, no bathroom issues at all (still can't push though lol), got around the house all day with no issues and even went to the store with my wife pick up a few things. Albeit she picked everything up and I just walked alongside.

      Did have one oh no moment last night that made me a little concerned. I was scooting down on the couch and not paying attention to what I was doing, arched my back and pulled with my legs causing a nice sharp pain on the right side. It was pretty sore and tender to the touch the rest of the night and still a little bit today, so I'll be keeping an eye on that. Hopefully didn't ruin anything.

      From here on out all update every few days until my follow-up appointment at the 2-week Mark. Hopefully all is good and intact, so I can get back to normal.

      Well I had my two week post-op appointment today. Doc said everything looked great and all is healing well. Looks like I'll be able to get back in the gym beginning of February. Start light and slowly work my way back into it.

      All in all, I'm pretty impressed with the recovery. It really wasn't anywhere near as bad as I was expecting. I'm at the two week mark, pretty much no pain at all aside from a little soreness if I move a certain way. All of my daily activities are back to normal. (Just not lifting anything heavy) I'm still a little weak and I notice I get tired quicker, but I think that's just from all of the downtime over the past couple weeks.

      Certainly glad to have this behind me. Thanks for following along! If anyone has to go through it, don't hesitate to send me a message if you have any questions. I'll give you as many tips as I can to make it as comfortable as possible.
