All is well. I had the first post-op x-ray today, and everything is where it should be.
Pain continues to be minimal. I had some left leg weakness in the first couple days after surgery, but that is getting better. There is a very small amount of left heel pain - normal.
The best thing is that my "pain avoiding posture to the left", which I have essentially had most of the time for years, is gone. I look like a normal person with a straight torso again!
Tomorrow I start physical therapy and will be discharged to the hotel.
