Hi all, I'm 5 weeks post OP tt a week post OP I developed PE in my lungs which had me in the hospital for 6 days and put on blood thinners for the blood clots and oxygen since my level was really low. Once I came home I was on oxygen for 3 weeks to help with my lungs. I'm finally feeling great but still not able to stand straight and have a lot of tightening in my stomach. I've also waited years to have this surgery done but I'm growing frustrated with when I can stand straight again. It's so hard getting around the house with a walker. Positive feedback would be great, I really hope this won't be permanent.
