I had my surgery(microdiscetomy/double laminotemy l4/5) 6/25 and i woke up this morning and was able to get into a sitting position v.easily without the back pain/shock that i have been getting since surgery.
I was also able to sit today for more than 5minutes without getting back pain.
My back feels sore now, but not that hurting awful shocking pain that i normally got when i used a muscle there. The sore feeling is nothing compared to what i was going through.
I cant believe it, i actually slept for 6 hours straight last nite and i am taking my pain medication on like 7 hour intervals now instead of 4 hours..
There is a light at the end of the tunnel, i didnt expect to make it here so quick.. knock on wood
I was actually able to stretch both legs while laying down. This was a big no no before as it would pull on my lower back and cause extreme pain too..
Now the only weird thing i have is not being able to walk while standing up straight.. which i guess i need PT for since i walked funny for so long favoring my left leg that was in constant pain from the nerve getting compressed from the herniation.
