Hello to all,
On Oct. 23 It will be one year anniversary of my surgery. WOW, I can't believe it! I wish that I could report that all is well in my world, but sadly it is not. For all intent and purpose my surgery Was a success. The neurosurgeon told me going in my surgery was being done to stabilize my spine and there was a 50-50 chance pain would be reduced or eliminated.
Numbness and pain remains in my R foot, r leg, low back left thigh and both hips and butt.i have attempted PT twice since surgery but pain increases and numbness in foot increases so I do not continue. I have been seeing PM since about 3 mos post surgery. He now has me on Morphine sulfate ER 60 mg bid. I am also no in the process of getting things in place for a neuro-stim trial. Not sure how I feel about this but am moving towards it.
I would LOVE TO HEAR FROM ANYONE who is also at this point in post op and hear how you are doing.
