What to expect after spinal surgery.
I have spinal stenosis, a bulging disc, degeneration in all other discs, foot drop and intense pain and pins and needles in my right leg. I walk with a stick and can only walk very short distances and very very slowly. I am on gabapentin and co-codamol, which dont really help a great deal.
I am due to go into hospital later this month for an operation on my spine (Im not certain which operation yet).
What I want to know is what I will be like afterwards. My physio had some doubts about whether I would return to my job as a primary school teacher because all the bending, standing and walking about make the symptons worse. Other opinions are that I will virtually skip out of the hospital!
Is there anyone who can advise me please?
