Just wanted to let everyone know how my surgery went. I had my surgery on 2/4/10 and I was a nervous wreck. Today is 2/8/10 and I feel good. When I came to I noticed that the pain inmy right leg was gone. My surgeon explained that once he got inside my back he realized that surgery was my only option. The pain has not been too bad.Of course it hurts around the incision. Each day when I open my eyes I just wonder if the pain is going to return. So far so good. I am doing everything that the hospital staff told me to do. I am not doing any lifting,bending, twisting or anything. The last thing I need is to go back in for a revision. I go back for my follow up on 2/15/10 and I woll let you guys know how that goes. Thanks for all of your support.
