I had emergency decomcompression last Thursday (14/02) at l4/l5 due to a ver high risk of bladder and or bowl dysfunction, which is nice...! Have been plauged wuith back issues for the last 2 years anyway, so was kind of glad they did something. Anyway, long story short, post op walked to toilet, felt odd but ok, Friday, walked round ward, up some stairs, came home, saturday very stiff, eased during the day, found laying down makes things worse! So only option was to keep moving which is recommended anyway, but each day since it's been getting worse pain wise in the lower back, very sore in the morning doesn't ease for ages and at the moment it's pretty cruddy!
So I guess my question is, is this to be expected? They did have to dig around a heck of a lot and pulled the nerves in all sorts of directions, but i would have thought each day would improve??
Anyway, any help given will be very much appreciated believe me!
