Hi , 7 weeks ago my Mom went for a Laminectomy in L5/S1 and L3/L4.
She had severe muscle spasms but some of the leg pain started to disapate. 4 weeks post-op she had to get her appendix taken out as she developed appendicitis .
She is now 7 weeks post-op for the Laminectomy and still has severe back muscle spasms almost disabilitating. She is becoming depressed from lying in bed all day but does still walk regularly and does he Physio exercises.
I would just like to get some kind of answers on to whether this is normal, and how long she going to have these muscles spasms for and when she can expect to start feeling better. She has good days where she up and walking and bad days where the spasms are so bad she can barely move. The neurosurgeon said it’s normal but he sometimes comes across as rude and we can never get a clear answer from him.
