This Wednesday will be my 6 week doctor apt for my l5-s1 spine fusion. I had a MIS TLIF with bone graft from my hip.
All the nerve pain was gone after surgery. I started walking a couple days shy of the two week mark. I am up to 4-5 miles a day now. Feels great. Little sore after if i walk to far but its a good sore. I know i still have a long way to go and anything could happen but right now i feel really great and im glad i had the surgery. I could not walk or stand straight before and now im out walking twice a day. Im almost completely pain free. The only problems i have are sleeping, my legs hurt and feel like i have restless leg syndrome. And my hamstring on the left, (effected side) is so tight i cannot extend my leg forward. Im sure that with some therapy it will improve. Im writing this on here because positive stories help people. I owe all of my success to my surgeon. He is a genius and and artist. If anyone is in florida and wants his name just send me a private message. Hope everyone finds relief soon. Take care.
