Hi, I am Eric, I had a foraminotomy on January 2nd. Dr. xxx or EDITperformed the surgery. Prior to the surgery, my right foot was very numb and pain in ankle area. In the morning, ankle pain is there, but hardly noticeable, as the day goes, it got worse and at night time, I can't even walk for a block or two in the neighborhood streets. Immediately after the surgery, my right foot felt great, no more pain, very mild numbness. I was told not to lift, bend and avoid sudden body movements and Dr. xxxx told me to walk everyday, the more the better.
Except the back around the cut area which I still feel a little pain or tense, I feel good. I am walking on treadmill, four miles a day, everyday. It is boring walking on a treadmill that long, the Australia Tennis Open, Winter Olympic on TV make walking less boring. I think I can now go back to my daily routine, walk, bicycling, and jog.
