Hello all! I just underwent a laminotomy from levels L4-S1. I'm postop now. I was experiencing some minor pain in both legs, and was wondering if that's for the most part due to the inflammation at the surgical site, or the remaining 10% of the nerve impingement that the procedure didn't fix. I'm curious. I'm somewhat nervous if I'm doomed to live with this pins & needles feeling for the remainder of my life. I hope it's due to the inflammation at the surgical site. Thank you all for your assistance. I'm 33. I'm in the military. I want to have a pain-free life. That's why I opted for the surgery. Thank you all.
