I surely need feedback. It was titled as minimally invasive for the spondylolithesis and stenosis, but I am in a world of pain, more than I had pre op. Was at big Ny hospital, had top surgeon. He says MRI looks fine, no nerve compression, but sitting and lying down is a nightmare. No problem to stand or walk. Weird electrical like shocks and paresthesia on right outer thigh, pain down lateral aspect of left leg down to ankle, and my rear feels like it is on fire when I sit. Cannot take pain meeds they gave me, percocet, got hallucinations and complete loss of appetite. using ice packs. Does this ever go away? I am petrified that it won't. Was an RN many years so I understand the lingo, but there was no mention of all these possible effects. Would be helpful to know what others have done. Any input greatly appreciated!
