Wanted: laminectomy recovery suggestions
I was just released by my surgeon at my 6 week check up for a L5 laminectomy discectomy to resume all normal activities. No restrictions. Just told to "use my head.". I am going to start work next week for a few hours a day at a time - I do computer work so means a lot of sitting. I was wondering if any of you who are ahead of me in your recovery would share your do's and don'ts with me? I am just afraid that now that I am no longer in the "safety" of my own home that I will do something and really set my self back. I am ready to start feeling as "normal" as I can but at the same time a little anxious also. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
