Just had an emergency laminectomy on l5/s1 due to loss of bladder control. Still no bladder but I can walk. Goodluck to everyone.
crystalclairnetOh, I am so sorry I missed your post. Are you ok now? And, yes, at least you can walk.Please let us know how you are doing.
darla19 and mems24 had surgery today. I hope you are both doing well.Please keep us posted.
I am doing ok I'm young 33 so dealing with this is a bit taxing my husband is amazing. My bladder isn't working and I just went number 2 on myself but couldn't feel it... I'm totally devastated but my husband says it's normal. Otherwise all is well some slight burning in the legs but no problems walking.
crystalclarinetI know how you feel, I have the same problems, just don't talk about it. But, with your surgery and time, it will get better. Isn't it wonderful to have amazing husbands!! Take care and keep us posted. If you don't mind, sending a prayer for both of you.
Had my surgery today. All went well - can walk and I’m home already. Minimal pain .. also great husband. Dr. Said might have nerve pain again in a few days but so far not. Thanks for support, tips etc. this group has been great!
SciaticaL5S1That's great!! If you do get any nerve pain, a good tip is use ice packs and/or heating pad, alternating.Another great husband, awesome!! I hope you keep posting about your recovery. Take care
AmoocowYour surgery, C5-C6 is tomorrow. We wish you the best of luck in surgery and recovery.Please keep us posted when you feel better.
