Sounds like you are doing all the right things. So interesting to hear how we have all had those same sensations and tweaks.
I am now 3 months away from when I had my surgery. I feel better every day, it is slow going, but it is always just a little better than yesterday. I hope that helps to keeps your thoughts in the right direction.
The hardest part of the procedure for me was the week after, not only physically but mentally.
Wishing you all the best for a healthy recovery.
