Hi Jackie, :wave:

I'm 11 weeks post op and also wondering when this recovery is going to get better.

I don't have too much trouble walking, but sitting is a pain in the A**, sorry, but both of my legs and feet get numb after sitting for more than 15 minutes.

Same story, give it time, which I'm running out of patience now.
I feel for your son, this is so frustrating.

Has he done any physical therapy ?

I start on 3/10, maybe that will help.

Please tell him that I wish him well :angel:
I will also keep him in my prayers [img][/img]

Be Well,

Two level laminectomy fusion L5-S1 & L2-3 done on 12/6/02.
Fifteen inch scar from the very top of butt crack (sorry), to the bra line.
BAK cages, rods & screws.(Titanium)
My pelvic bone was used for grafting.
Praying that the other two discs in between, won't have to be fused later, as I was told it was a possibility, due to the other two discs in between, not being in that great of shape.
Doc didn't want to fuse four levels, unless it is really necessary.
I would hate to repeat the surgery, as the recovery period, is so very painful.
I also have a free fragment in my T11-12 area, that I'm still refusing surgery for, at this point in time.
That surgery is way too dangerous for me to consider, until if affects my being able to walk.
