Post-fusion laminectomy report

Hi All,

I had my laminectomy and fusion on Monday. I was released from the hospital on Wednesday. It went really well, I went on 2 short walks Monday night and walked a lot Tues. Doc said I was doing fine and sent me home w/ a program to walk a minimum of 20 minutes 3x a day. I have been able to do that plus a little more. My back looks very swollen in a photo I had someone take. I guess the swelling is normal but I wonder how long it lasts.

Anyway, I am grateful for all of the support I've received here and can happily report I have NO sciatic pain!!!!!

Happy New Year!
