I doubt anyone else here has had three level lumbar disc replacement as it is still pretty rare, but I'm keen to hear from anyone who has had two level or even single level lumbar replacements.
I had three level disc replacment (using Charite discs)surgery on 1st December, on L3/4, L4/5 and L5/S1 in London.
5 weeks on I'm still in terrible pain, pretty well bed-bound, although I can walk a few yards. Sitting tolerance of about 30 seconds.
I don't know anyone else who has had this, or similar, surgery to know whether this is normal, but I had expected some improvement by now.
Anyone willing to compare notes? Here would be great, or PM me if you prefer, or email on email@example.com.
Would love to hear from you as this is a pretty lonely and frightening experience!
