Hey guys, I hope you're all doing well with your recovery and I would like to wish you all a happy new year.
I'm 7 weeks post op (L5/S1 micro) and if it hadn't been for a setback suffered at 4 weeks I probably would've been going far better right now than I am. It looks like it's going to be the worst New Year's Eve on record for me as I will be in my bed most of the time. Luckily I have family around to support me. It could always be worse I guess.
The thing that scares me most right now is how crooked I look infront of a mirror. I am pulling to the left like I was pre surgery and it is very noticeable. I'm just wondering how long it took people with very large herniations to fully recover and look back on their surgery as a success.
