I am just checking in and giving some follow up info for some of you who have followed my posts and for those who have gone through similar symptons as myself, its a journey.
I am having a foraminotomy/laminectomy at L5-S1 to adress my ongoing back pain, sciatic pain on my left side since my RIGHT sided herniation was operated on last year.
I am really hopefull that this will ease my symptoms, and get me where I need to be and avoid a fusion for as long as I can.
My surgery is scheduled for May 13th and I am returning to work on May 24th!! I am a little nervous about that but my surgeon has promised me it will be a quick recovery. I'll keep you all posted. Thanks for listening.
CONGRATS again to you Gwennie.....I'll see you on the other side!! LOL
