Hi all! I'm 18 months post op & doing well. Leg pain completely gone, however still have some back pain when I over do it. I am able to recover quickly by taking it easy for awhile.
I am able to work full time in an office. I still take Norco, 3 per day and I'm ready to start weaning off of them. All in all, my surgery was successful and Im so very greatful to have my life back. However, my Surgeon said I need to be careful with my back for the rest of my life. No BLT's when working out.
My Dr. said there is a good chance I will need surgery on L2-3 eventually. If so, I won't be as scared the 2nd time. I think the anxiety and fear before surgery is worse than the actual surgery.
I'm so glad I had the surgery!
Spinal Stenosis, Spondlylolisthesus, DDD.
L4,5 Laminectomy, Bone graft & Fusion.
7 hour surgery, compacted nerves were dissected & freed.
