They didn't say anything about taking it easy. I hope they don't tell me no strengthening exercises! I can wait a few more weeks to do all of the many things I haven't been able to do comfortably for a long time now, but if I have to refrain from my usual routines I'm going to be bumming.
Now I'm getting really scared about how painful the procedure will be, but I've got to do it. I figure I can endure anything, knowing it will end. It's the pain with no end in sight that wears me down.
