12-23-09 had laminectomy same day surgery. I have been feeling really great, felt like the issues of numbness while walking had been totally resolve just like the doc said it would. however starting on day 5 a I was taking my walk and just like before about a 1/2 block into it the numbness came back, just like before...Wow! what a slap in the face I felt. All had been so GOOD and now the one thing that troubled me the most is making it's appearance. I need to know from others, Is this normal? Does it take time for the numbness to go away? What is your experiences from post op laminectomy. How much did you do after surgery. My family thinks maybe I have over done things! I also have some drainage from my incision the last couple of day. This being a holiday week since my surgery makes it hard, Since I cannot call upon my Dr.
Thank you in advance for ANY input you may have to help me.
