I had multi-level lumbar fusion L4-5 and L5-S1 Oct 6th. The surgery went real well. The nerve pain in my legs is gone completely. I have learned to be for the most part self suffecient, I can bathe my self dress my self an walk without the aid of a cain or walker. I walk 15 min 3 times a day. I still have quite a bit of psin but thr mrdicine does a pretty good job of controlling it. I take norco 10/325 every 4 hrs and xanax .5 2 before bed and a half a one in the afternoon and neurontin 3 times a day. All in all I feel really good as long as I keep uo with medicines, though I do have occasional days where I feelmpretty well drained. I had a follow upvisit with my Dr. on the 28th he said I was right on track and to make sure I wasnt trying to rush things and overdoing it.
Just wanted you guys know what was going on and let you know success is possible.
