Hi Will, :wave:

I'm so happy the back pain is gone, but sorry to hear about the numbness :(

I have the same concerns, both of my legs and feet go totally numb after sitting for more than 15 minutes, plus my legs ache all day, everyday.
I didn't have these problems prior to surgery, so I'm really pissed off [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/bang.gif[/img]

My doctor says the same thing, it takes time, I'm so sick of hearing that one !

I'm still waiting for the day it doesn't happen, I will be praying that your numbness goes away real soon :angel:

I just wanted to let you know that you are not alone :)

Take Care,

------------------
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.
