Hello to everyone,
I had fusion and laminectomy at 3 levels (L3-4, L4-5, and L5-S1) in mid-June. Still healing (I've learned patience), and I think that all is going well except for a couple of issues that I hope folks who are at least 2 months + post-surgery can advise me on:
1) Tightness in right leg - I have a tightness in my right leg, as well as soreness. Feels as if I pulled a hamstring, and I am not able to fully extend my leg without discomfort. Anyone had this?
2) Restless legs - creepy, crawly, itching feelings - at times, I get up in the middle of the night and walk. Is this common (I recall having this when I had a diskectomy in 2002).
3) Still have variable difficulty sitting for lengthy periods of time. This gets in the way of my work - what have others experienced with this - in terms of return to work (timeframes), limitations, etc?
Thanks to all, and I wish you all the best of health!
