Well... thought id give a "success" story..
maybe give people some hope in there quest of
back pain...

last november I had a laminectomy/discectomy
on my L4,L5,S1

my nerves were so badly crushed the Doc
said it was like a vice...
had acute CES too..
which is completely gone now..

basically I needed to have the emergency
surgery..

fast foward to now...

had my follow up yesterday..
doc said I look great.. ive got no pain
and if I do have any it gets no worse then
a "1".. just need to stretch it out..

my left big toe is almost at full strength
before surgery it was floppy and useless.
my left leg is strong again.. actually
feels stronger then my right =).

I still have some numbness in the leg and foot
and spasms at times.. Dr said that will
go away in time.. and that the body

so thats it.. I lurk alot here.
see how people are...

anyways maybe this can help people
in some sort of small way.. that u can
still have a bascially normal life
after spine surgery.

Kenny =)
