Re: L2 S1 laminectomy how long will I be in pain
Thanks for the welcome
I am happy to find someplace where i can talk to people who can understand my position. and yes I am saying I had a L2 thru S1 laminectomy without fusion. I really don't know about the spinal stability. I do know that laying on either side feels like there is extreme lateral pressure at L2-L1. I still have nerve pain at L4 L5 S1 that was there before the surgery, that pain runs around and down the outside of my RT leg, at 10 weeks out I am still in alot of pain, muscle pain along both sides of the lumbar and the nerve pain, I see my surgeon in 1 wk. and am going discuss stabilization issue and future pain control.
I am still involved in PT trying to work thru this \
Oh, this is a result from an [B]work related[/B] injury so I am also involved in trying to keep an employer happy with me...
