2 years after Laminectomy..
I'm hoping someone can give me some info.
I had a Laminectomy performed 3-19-08
I work as a house cleaner..
I don't lift anything real heavy,just ALOT of bending/squating and moving around all day long.
I'm careful to always bend my knees and try and keep my posture right.
My partner and I clean 4 -5 very LARGE houses per day.
Most are million dollar homes.
W e have a time limit,so we have to move fast!
I have worked there for 1 year..
As of this past week,i'm experiencing some problems with my back..
Near the very end of the day i can't bend down at all w/out having severe pain shoot down my left side..It's so intense,i almost fall down!
Like a fool,i worked all week,thinking i could be more careful,it would go away...
Because when i wake in the a.m..I feel ok!
On friday,i had the worst episode ever!
Usually i come home,take a hot shower/muscle relaxer/ibuprofen/heating pad and it eases up..
I had to have my husband help me undress/shower..
I couldn't bend at all that evening,so i just layed around,until bedtime.
Got up saturday and felt ok,once again....
We are sooo deep in debt with hospital bills,i'll try everything before i go back!
Just wondering ,if anyone here has experienced this 2 1/2 post surgery.
What advice anyone can give me..
Thanks in advance.
