I had L3-L4 L4-L5 L5-S1 Lamienectomy and Discetomy done 5 days ago. I injured my back 6 years ago but reinjured 4 months ago and was in intolerable pain, mainly sciatica. One week prior to surgery started to lose some right leg muscle use, tip toes that kinda stuff.
I am now 5 days post op and doing AWESOME. No pain, I take 1 percocet at night to help sleep. Took shower this morning. I am walking up stairs normal,not one at a time. Only problems are right leg weakness which has improved everyday. A little numbness in my private areas and rectum. Have only had 1 assisted bowel movement but passed gas for the first time today. LOL. God is in control and cant wait for tommorow.
MAYBE SOME FEEDBACK ON MUSCLE WEAKNESS AND BOWELS. I EXPECT IMPROVEMENT, BUT WOULD LIKE TO HEAR ANY SIMILAR SITUATIONS
