For any of those that read my previous post..."Upcoming surgery...terrified", I had a successful surgery but I couldn't stop crying prior to the operation, I was THAT scared. I had a Laminotomy, Disectomy, and Foraminotomy; after waking from anesthesia they couldn't control my pain so I stayed 1 night for observation.
It has been 1 week since the operation, and already had my post-op appointment (Dr was very happy with my progress), and was doing extremely well. Foot drop was gone, leg pain was gone, and was the only pain I felt was from the incision. I do have constipation and EVERY time I stand up I am lightheaded, nausea, and dizzy (even when I'm not taking the pain pills). I am still HEAVILY relying on help to do anything!!!
My problem now, is that all my pain prior to surgery is returning and returning with a vengeance, including my foot drop, and I have been having some urinary leakage (which I did not have prior to the surgery).
Should I be concerned since ALL my pain was gone and now it's coming back and worse???
