I had laminectomy surgery (L5-S1) last May and walked after surgery. However, now, I guess I feel that because my job requires walking (daycare), I don't need to do it other than during my job. I exercise during the kids' nap time, but I'm still in a lot of pain. My exercises are tailored toward avoiding injuring myself again of course; I just haven't included a regimen of walking daily into my program.
What I'm wondering is... if I started up walking every day, is there a chance it could lessen my leg pain? Would it possibly loosen up some of the scarring back there? Supposedly there's no re-herniation, but there is some scar tissue from surgery. When I walk in the store, I can feel it pulling a little (my nerve).
