Well i had my sergury nov 13. Thanks to the suport of my family and all their help im doing preaty well. Back to work after 3 months From what ive heard some areout up to 6 months. Thedoc looked at my mri and called me in 1/2 Hrs saying i had to have sergury for compressed spinal cord and damge to left legg nerve. I had severe foot drop and barely walking. I feel very fortunate to be healing as well as i am. I do still have tingling inmy left foot top and big toe. I do not have alot of pain but i can not sleep very well at all i take lunesta 3mg and alieve before i go to bed andalso sleep in a suport. I toss and turn like a mad manon a phyco trip lol. But over all i am very happy with the results of sergery. I did take alot of vitmins and drank alot of water. Other then that i sat reclined and played video games lol for 1 1/2 months. I hopee all peoplerecover as well as i have. I also realy wathched mu atitude about being out of work and the bills being behind and all. I did injure myself at home so no compensation for lost time or anything witch made i hard but doing good. Wanted to post a success story.
