... If he does a discectomy and laminectomy how long would I be off work? ... (1 replies)
... The surgery was done on June 29 2015. The nerve pain is on left foot and calf mainly. I awoke from the surgery with a burning pain in my left foot sole. I did not have this pain prior to surgery. He pain has lessened over time but is still there and bothers me a lot. My cat scan shows the pedicle screws in the right place and the cage went in from the left side. The op... (3 replies)

... I had a Laminectomy of my L3,4 & 5, with a fusion of L4/5 seven weeks ago. I thought by this point I would be off pain medication and valium. I still have to take it two to three times a day to help stop the burning/aching in my back. Before I give the Doctor a call I was wondering if I am the only one who has to still take meds. Also I have no idea if this is related to my... (1 replies)
... Be sure you take short, frequent walks. This is the best way to avoid scar tissue from attaching to a spinal nerve root as it forms and fills in during the first twelve weeks post surgery. The key is to walk often, even if it is up and down a hall or around your house. At this point you are not walking to build endurance or anything like that. It is important to provide... (10 replies)
... Oh no I feel terrible you're having pain again. I went for my follow-up today and they were pleased with my progress. I still have a grinding sound when I walk. They sent me for an x-ray of my hips to rule that out. The grinding doesn't hurt, I've had it for quite some time and thought it would go away with surgery. But it's loud if you walk next to me you can hear it... (10 replies)

... Hi Lynn! I probably should've checked the date before posting. :) I am just at seven months. My surgeon says I am fully fused "quite solidly." However, I've pushed to get off the meds, (3 year old and all) and probably pushed myself too hard too early. I gave up the walker at about 2 weeks, just got fed up with it. (which in retrospect was way too early!) I was released... (10 replies)
... Be aware that even though you may show bone growth early, it takes about twelve months for the fusion to set up hard and for you to consider yourself healed. Consider yourself very lucky that your leg pain is gone! (10 replies)
... How far out of surgery are you now? It will be a month on the 24th. I love the fact that I have no nerve pain in my legs! I have an eight inch insision on my back and still have pain from that. I have been doing my walking and use a walker that you can sit on outside of my house because I don't want to fall. Inside the house I don't use anything. I go Tuesday for a follow up... (10 replies)

... Most importantly, be patient. There is no way to hurry this recovery along. I found the post surgery tips list invaluable. I purchased a grabber claw and it was the most important thing for me. I had a stool for the shower to lean on, an iPad for Netflix movies. A bed set up in the living room, as I couldn't get up the stairs. Plus, then I could watch movies at 2 AM when I... (10 replies)
... an online "free MRI" eval from North American Spine for a laser procedure. After reading the report they said I was not a candidate for laser, but that I need a laminectomy and discectomy. They want me to send the actual MRI images. ... (13 replies)
... I am having a laminectomy of L3, 4 & 5 with fusion of L4/5. Looking for anyone with a similar surgery how it went and how was their recovery. I am extremely nervous for the surgery. (10 replies)
... I just came from my dr and I am only 3wks post op a microdisecectomy and laminectomy on l5-s1 where I too, had a huge herniation. I asked the dr today, how much disc was left and he said that it was hard to say, but if I did re-herniate, it was possible that I may need a fusion. I have a lot of anxiety about this, but am determined to not bend and twist, if I can help it. ... (1 replies)
... p pain will always be there he thinks. The only way to get rid of it would be a Fusion and he said there is no way he would ever have that done. He wants to do a Laminectomy for my leg pain and also kill a nerve in the facet joint which that would be temporary relief of the back pain. ... (0 replies)

... After being diagnosed with lumbar spinal stenosis in 1992 and undergoing several other treatment options that were not successful, I had back surgery, a laminectomy w/bone fusion. I then developed urinary incontinence, which is still a problem for me. :( and also lost my mobility. I am now spending most of the time in a wheelchair, although I am able to use a walker for very... (2 replies)

... It was great to hear from you, all you can do is stick with it I always push and push hard and I end up paying for it. I live in Missouri and where I live rocks grow like grass so I was dinging them out yesterday (I did not pick them up) and I paid for it. The pain Dr's upped my meds to Oxy 30mg now and that is mostly for the leg pain (if it is doing something I thank God... (12 replies)
