I am 4 weeks after MIS L34,L45 laminectomy for severe spinal stenosis. I AM 55y. male in good physical shape before surgery(exercised daily). The recovery is tough, but now I am walking 2 miles a day, waiting for physio in 2 weeks. Still have a lot of pain, burning, spasms in legs, butt, lower back that pain change and moving daily.
never had there pains before surgery(before surgery could not stand or walk more than 5 min without legs going very heavy. Now I can stand straight and dreadful feel in legs disappeared). But sitting what problem. I cannot sit more than 5-10 min. I feel like I will break in half in my lower back after minimal sitting. I am off painkillers and take mostly regular Tylenol at night only.
I am wondering is it normal feels like this in 4 weeks?. I don't have follow up till 8 weeks off.
