16 Days since my surgery, laminectomy,hardware, screws from L2 to S1
Still too early to tell how much of a difference the surgery has made. In 2008 I had a fusion with hardware at L4 &L5 Level that failed and it took this many years to decide to try one more time. I could not imagine living the rest of my life in the terrible pain, not being able to go places with family cos I can't walk far at all without being able to sit down, and making it super hard to do my job, (I drive a school bus) so therefore cannot take anything for pain. I didn't want to go on disability without giving this last surgery a chance so will Keep checking in to see how everybody else is doing.
