hi, a week ago today i had decompression discectomy surgery on L5
all has gone well and im home after 3 days in hospital. im on co-codamol and liquid morphine, yes it is uncomfortable to move but the alternative was forever pain!
I have been given exercises from the physio very slight ones to do for two weeks, im not allowed to removed dressing until i see my surgeon next week. yesterday i was able to walk about 2000 steps and only slept for 4 hours in the afternoon! sleep is the key you get tired constantly. My advice is go with the flow, do ad you are told. i was nervous before the operation but aftef 18 months of constant pain i had to do it. good luck to everyone and i want go hear more positive stories
