7 months since L4/L5 Laminectomy...

Hello all,

I promised myself to keep coming back and letting you know my so far success story. I had a lumbar laminectomy 7 months ago and even though I'm not at 100% I am so much better than before. The surgery was a blessing and gave me my life back.

Yes, I do have day's my hip hurts or my back or a little nerve pulling here and there when I stretch wrong.

Would I do the surgery again? Yes, I would.

I know I still have a lot of year's ahead of me but I take care of myself so much more.

Thank you to all of you for posting on this website.

My prayer's go out to all of you and hope one day we are all pain free.

    It's great to hear that you are doing so well. It's always good to hear the positive side.
    4 level ACDF C4-C7 5-2-11, laminectomy & discectomy L4-L5 1/26/12, ALIF L4-5, L5-S1 12/10/12.
  • very nice of you to come back. So often the success stories leave and never come back.
    It's encouraging to folks to hear how things can work well. Glad you are doing well and taking care of yourself.
