Excellent results and great news!
You'll be Chuck Berry duck walking in no time!
This is so cool, life changing for you!!
Gotta ask, is that your IV machine in the background, or your new celebratory Fractal amplifier??
I'm thrilled for you, and anyone who gets relief from such pain.
I had that same surgery in 2008, after a year of pain. I was experiencing all of the same horrible pains that you described. The doc proclaimed my surgery a success, but I did not wake up pain free. After further scans, the doc simply said that the nerve had been so severely pinched and damaged that it may never completely heal. Sort of like when you accidentally pinch a guitar string while installing it.
So, although the surgery made things better than they were, I still struggle with pain.
So... I am thrilled to hear when anyone else gets this thing completely fixed. I am happy for you my friend.
I love a story with a happy ending! You're right on about quality of life, yours should be on the upswing.
IV machine and oxygen monitor all under the control of Dr. Bear.
I am so glad for you man !
So glad to hear the good news.
Hope all continues in the positive direction.
I'm happy you have relief! Make sure you follow through with the PT and don't over do things. I rushed back and ended up with another laminectomy soon after the first. Take care-understand exactly what you went through!
EXCELLENT! take the time to recover , and dont push too hard that will come in time, Bet you cant wait to get home? all the best!
Congratulations! Best wishes for a full and speedy recovery. Live well and enjoy!
Congrats. Here's to a speedy recovery and pain free future!
Congratulations on the success of your operation and what can only be the start of a new and wonderful life for you! Good stuff all around John.
C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S !!!!
Living with pain can be... well, a pain.
But stay as vigilant as you can, John, to build up the fitness of your core, so the spine has a lot less work to do. It could expand the effectiveness of this laminectomy tremendously. Your nervous system will try to forget about the pain, but at some level, you need to make sure you never forget.
It sure is true, we'd made such amazing advances in spinal surgery. Sure, there's instances where there's nothing the surgeon can do, but when they can make it right, the methodology today, as compared to 1978, it makes 1978 seem like 400 years ago or something.
Happy to hear that. I know that spinal/neuro surgery is often a crapshoot (my anecdotal experience from talking to folks who have gone through it indicates that there are lots of things that can go wrong), and I'm happy to hear that yours turned out so well. I'm currently in physical therapy for neuropathy/radiculopathy that makes me left hand go numb (not good for a guitar player!) and while I hope that surgery is never necessary it's nice to know that at least sometimes it works!
Awesome to hear!!!
It's like an entirely new lease on life. A big congrats to you!
Oh, please DO pay attention and adhere to all those precautionary recommendations -- especially for the next 2-4 weeks. That stuff is 'make or break' in terms of making a full recovery.
Technically, a Lumbar Laminectomy (since it involved the L4 [Lumbar] vertebrae).
