At the first week period I would say the pain level is down, its is improved. I am still having some nerve discomfort from time to time, most noatably in the mid to late afternoon after being up and down all day and doing a few things. I have been able to exercise each day too. I am iehter using the stationary bike ( most) or the treadmill. I have not attempted my favorite yet, the elyptical. I have 4 more days to go until I reach my 10 days point of my pain journal and send it back to the Dr., so overall there has been lots of improvement.
