recovery time from spinal fusion l2-l5
Had fusion at L4/L5 and laminectomy at L2/L3 and L3/L4, but 2 months later
needed the other levels fused. So I am 8 months post second surgery and
although now able to walk, I still have pain and numbness in my leg.
Lyrica, Cymbalta and Celebrex as well as physical therapy are still
being prescribed, but although pain had subsided, I now seem to have
little additional improvement over the last 3 months.
Thoughts as to further recovery, other medications?
How long do I go on without additional intervention?
My surgeon says I am doing fine and it could take 2 years.
