I just went through a quadruple laminectomy on July 10. I had Lumbar Stenosis and couldn't walk more than a few yards without being in significant pain.
I am home now, walking around, in pain at the incision site, but not in my leg/hip where I was in constant pain before.
I pray for healing for you and a speedy recovery from surgery. If you'd like to compare notes/surgeons etc, please send me a private email.
Your Brother in Christ,
