I am 29 and having surgery on Tuesday. I am would like to get thoughts from people on what to expect and things to do and don't do. I have to tell you I am very excited that I am finally going to get the pain to go away. After doing all the research that I have I am aware that the dull nagging pain down my leg might still be there and since I have been dealing with this for 16 months that is will take a long time for the nerve to calm down. What I am fired up about is the fact that I will hopefully get rid of the extreme stabbing pain that I have now.
I have done everything 2 epidurals, 1 more injection for trigger points, 8 months of PT, Yoga, Chiro, you name it I have done it. I am just really hoping that this will be a final solution so that I can once again play with my daughter pain free.
I am open to any suggestions and advise. I think that this forum will be a good way for me to stay positive when I get down post surgery.
