After suffering from spondylolisthesis and severe stenosis for several years, I finally gave in and had surgery on 1/11/16. My sciatica pain was so horrible I could only walk or stand for about ten minutes before pain set in. I am 35 and had found out about my back problems almost ten years ago. I tried everything else before resorting to survey, which I had done by a neurosurgeon and orthopedic surgeon. I work full time and have a three year old. I wish I had done this surgery five years ago when it got horrible. I only had three days of severe pain post op. I feel great with minimal pain. They told me to stay active but no twisting or bending. I went shopping the other night, 10 days post op, for five hours. No sciatica pain. Just some soreness from surgery. I'm amazed to say the least and pray my recovery continues on this route. Has anyone else had such great results so soon?
