... I had the same 3-4 surgery and it relieved some pain, but I'm looking into having L5-S1 done now as it's beating the current pain meds I'm prescribed. I would make sure to ask about the levels above and below. My surgeon went in from the side for most of the work and the back to place hardware. I was home in 2 days and at work on day 4. I did try a spinal cord stimulator for... (3 replies)
... I went in for a removal (MIS decompression) of a synovial cyst on the L3-L4. I was fully under, intubated, and when they flipped me to my stomach, my heart rate dropped too low for their taste. They gave me atropine and ephedrine, but couldn't get my heart rate up. When they flipped me back over, it was fine. But they aborted the surgery. Now I've been cleared by the... (1 replies)

... Both of you need to be patient! It often takes about a year until your body adjusts to the new alignment. It definitely takes a year for the new bone to set up to the point that it is hardened off and completely set...even though you may show bone growth as early as a couple weeks. You have had major surgery. Regardless of what the spine surgeon may tell you, it is not an... (3 replies)

... >>>> Hi Jacqee and welcome to the forum. Having had several back surgeries, I can tell you that recovery takes TIME. Once you are healed well, I see no reason you can't ride your bike and work out, tho you may have to change your routine to accomodate your back. Once you have had spinal surgery, it is important to always keep in mind that your back will never quite be the... (3 replies)

... Ginger, The best thing would be to invest in a work station where you can stand up instead of sit. I did this and it has made a tremendous difference in my low back strain. Plus it is just healthier to stand up. I get more exercise during the day too. I bought mine at staples. It is basically a high table with two leaves that you can fold in. Comes in black and cherry... (5 replies)
