I'm not a doctor, but I happen to work with a person that had the same surgery as TP. The guy still has pain from time to time along with brief episodes of numbness in his legs. Sitting for long periods of time are impossible for him. He often has to get up and walk around.
Now not saying this person is a NFL player but he was a very athletic person, runner, weight lifting, golfing on the weekends. Since his surgery, which he had in Nov., he has not been able to do anything but walk. Under doctors orders not to lift any heavy weights and not to put unneeded stress on the back. Such as the impact from running. His doctor told him in ost cases it can that a year to 2 years to become normal again.
Now this is a guy that just wants to run and play golf and be able to do his work without having to wlak around for 5 minutes and stretch his back.
Now we all saw Trevor make an attempt to play in late Dec, which he did, but then the following week he was unable to play in the playoff game. So in three months time he has gone from not being able to play back to back games to talking about being a dominate force?
If he is as healty as he proclaims then why not restructure the deal to allow your team to get you help along the D-Line? Thus taking more pressure and double teams away from yourself and giving you even more chances to succeed.
Instead he balked at the restructuring and watched has his best teammate on the opposite side of the line leave. Not to mention have two losses in the secondary.
We are now less then a month away from the draft. The media/Broncos always seem to find a way to release stuff like this at these times.
I'd rather hear this type talk from Trevor's doctor and the Denver medical staff. Not from a player who seems to be self promoting.
As far as what I have heard. It's been the same thing since Jan. He's moving along, but still has some pain and some mis-firing with the leg nerves that cause a spasim like twitch in the muscle.
