Hi there,

I am about 9 weeks out from a laminectomy/ disectomy. Surgery was more extensive than they expected, isn't it always, LOL. I had 4 hours of surgery and I had a herniated disc repair, 3 bone spurs, stenosis, and a cyst that had irritated the nerve so bad it had built up scar tissue like a wall around it, and the wall was moving in. I had little back pain, but severe bilateral leg pain prior to the surgery.

In the hospital they had a PT lady come in and she walked around with me and up and down stairs to see how I could do.

From the beginning I had no problem walking, or going up and down stairs. I had almost no pain at the incision site, however the leg pain was actually worse the first couple of weeks. It is now getting better and better all the time.

I would not hesitate for a second to have this operation.
