I'm 20 years old and I recently had an L5-S1 laminotomy and discectomy. Since the day of the surgery, the leg pain has been so much more severe than it was before. It was awful before, but now it is just unbearable. I can't sit up, I can't fully extend it. I hear of all of these people who feel better right away and I'm wondering if anyone else has had this issue? I'm still on a walker and kind of just laying in bed all day. When I do get up, I try to walk a bit, but get extremely weak after 5 minutes or so. Does anyone have any information for me?
