Underwent lumbar discectomy and neural decompression surgery on June 30,2009 after 17 years of lower back pain. Hopefully, some of my experience can help.
In a nutshell:
Opted for accurascope laser procedure at EDITED Cost $15k.
My right leg from the waist down has been numb since the surgery. Unable to walk without cane/crutch. I'm told the compressed nerves have been aggravated and is causing the numbness. 2 weeks to heal, 4-6 weeks total recovery expected. I start pt today, 1 week after surgery.
More to follow.
