L 4 & L5 surgury

I am one week out pre-op doing very well,taking 7.5\ 500 lortab and 10 mg flexerel and 800mg of nurotin every 12 hrs. My pain level is not much worse now than before my operations.I have all the feeling back in both legs. If you are having trouble urinating you may want to take some flowmax for a week or two it should help you greatly. Start walking a mile asap and wear the back brace if it not too painful for you to do so. I am glad I had mine repaired.It was tough the first three days but then started rapidly improving every day. I highly recommend this to anyone having real need of it,I can set on the toilet with out my legs going numb and walk with out them folding out from under me. R E A Headland Alabama
