Re: lumbar surgery

Sorry...Iím traveling and havenít been checking into the board. I suppose you are going ahead with surgery tomorrow. Good luck. Iíll be available to answer questions as you recover. The important thing is to be patient and realize that recovery is a long slow process...and we arenít as young as we used to be!

My sciatic pain begin around 2004 but I noticed some numbness in my feet around 2000. My first surgery was in 2008...then 2009, 2010 and Sept 2017. (I donít know anyone who has had just one back surgery!). Before my first surgery I couldnít walk more than about 30í and couldnít stand long enough to chop an onion. I travel now and am very much improved...but not 100% ďback to normalĒ of course!
