Recovery time for minimally invasive back surgery
I had a minimally invasive back surgery two weeks ago and I am still feeling the clinching pain in my back that I had before the surgery. I am still feeling some nerve pain in my leg as well. Does anyone know about how long it will be (approximately) before I notice a lessening of this persistent pain? I had a more invasive surgery in 2009 on level
4-5. I had hardware put in my back. That recovery period seemed to last for a good two to three months. My recent surgery on levels 2-3 and 3-4 was the lesser invasive surgery. Am I being impatient? I don't know when to decide whether or not the surgery was a success. Does anybody in the community have experience with this type of surgery? I would like to hear your stories about your recovery time.
