Hey y’all, first time poster here. I’ve been reading through old posts and wanted to see if anyone had updates or suggestions with low back surgery.
My story - I’m 11 weeks post laminectomy of L5/S1 disc. The pain has SLOWLY improved but my low back still feels week and I still get some radicular pain in my leg - mainly hamstring area but my foot can feel a bit numb at times. I had the the nerve pain for about 10 months and was managing conservatively until I aggravated the condition while doing light back squats (were talking 95 lbs).
Anyway, I’ve become a little worried and depressed as I feel like I should be further. I have begun riding the assault bike, doing light days of shoulders, legs, back, chest, etc… i relive it will take time but someone please tell me that they’ve had a similar story and that they were eventually able to get back to their normal life. I’m going crazy!
