Had L5-S1 Discectomy back in 2008. I could barely crawl around on my hands and knees. About 3 hours after my surgery, I walked out of the hospital, under my own power, and never took another pain killer. Like the others mentioned, listen to your Dr. and do the therapy!

Back twice, neck once here, all spinal op's... you'll wonder why you waited. Take the pain meds while it hurts, and then stop... some don't, another problem... Good Luck.

Make them wash there hands before touching you after surgery. Do not come home if you have any temperature.

Probably a little late, but they wanted to catheterize me before surgery. I asked how long the surgery would take and they said "no more than an hour". I said I just peed and I'm pretty sure I can hold it til I wake up. LOL Anyway, they did not catheterize me. Sometimes, it doesn't hurt to ask/question the "normal" procedures. I think some of this stuff is optional but covered by insurance so they just do it.

Hey One Handed Setters: not the best time to be asking but: Did you happen to see the episode of Trapping inc. I did on Wild TV. Rich Mellon has it up on the trapping Inc. You Tube channel now. Any ways I showed the One Handed setters and mentioned your company and what a good guy you are. Don't know if it helped business any but I hope so; you make a great product. I hope the surgery helps and you feel better in time to do a little trapping.

Thank you all for the best wishes and Prayers. Ran out of options and surgery is the only way out now. (Mod-Severe Spinal Stenosis L3-L4)
Muskrat411, I will have to check that out.
Going back to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center Spinal Center for another MRI tomorrow.
Passed Kidney Stones last week end and did not even know except the toilet was full of blood. Perfect timing, could not feel it. They say it is not fine I was told. It was my first time with the stones at home, No problem.
The Hard Part is getting surgery scheduled!!!
Thanks All
Dave
