I am 3 weeks post op, spent 20 days in hosp after procedure some of this time was rehab. My surgery went for 8hrs due to some other issues my Neurosurgeon said it was very messy and took him ages to even get started on the laminectomy.I found the pain for about 3 days after surgery was the worst pain I have ever had to endure.
I am home now still taking copius amounts of medication.The scar site is also very sensitive (which is to be expected).
I am finding I just can't get over the pain I went through whilst in hosp plus I am finding it hard to deal with how my back feels now I guess there is still swelling there. I am not sleeping well at night ( this was the same before surgery). I just cannot get comfortable sitting in a chair or lying in bed.
I am doing light house work atm nothing strenuous. I am off work for 3 months. I have had lower back issues all my life I am 50yrs old now. The last 2 years being the worst ever.
I am just curious about anybody elses recovery after this type of surgery,
