Hi I am new here, I have been reading all these great posts. Trying to search for any information,. I hope this is not a silly question.
8 weeks ago I had a laminectomy on l5/S1. While it has fixed the leg paralysis and the drop foot seemed to improve very quickly I am having a problem. The nerve was aggravated for many many weeks post op though that has calmed down to a dull roar
At my 2 week post op appointment my doctor did not feel I needed PT and just told me to walk. He said I was doing much better than he had expected. So, I have been walking a couple of times a day.
I try to vary routine between sitting, standing, walking, resting.
In the morning when I wake my low back is very stiff and painful
Is this normal?
