Re: Laminectomy recovery
Congratulations on such a good recovery. And thank you for posting this as it will give hope to others who are contemplating such surgery.
I would like to give you a little advise tho. One of the most common things to go wrong after such a surgery is that the patient is doing so well that they over-extend themselves and cause relapse or even a re-herniation. One of the things that worry me is that you are driving. At this point, you aren't healed yet and even the tiniest little fender bender can cause a setback. Lifting, twisting, bending, driving, etc. is somethings that should be avoided until given clearance by your surgeon.
Best of luck....and please continue to post and let us know how you are doing. We get far too few good stories!
