Haven't been online for a couple of days, work leaves me somewhat exhausted by the end of the day.  Tomorrow is a holiday, an extra day of rest!

By now you probably have had the "manipulation".  Hope it went well.  It did take me awhile to achieve the same success the surgeon had while doing the procedure.  But I am now back to the 120 he succeeded in getting in the OR.  

Take the pain meds this week.  I actually increased my meds the weeks following the manipulation in order to get my flexion back.  Didn't feel I needed them at first, thought I could taper off, but finally realized not taking them frequently was keeping me from progressing.  My thoughts are with you.  There is a light at the end of this for you!  And you have a lot of people thinking of you and wishing you the best!
