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

Don't be afraid to take the pain meds after surgery. My surgeon told me your body will not heal properly when its in pain.Take them for the first week or 10 days, then get rid of them. My dr. gave me 2 weeks worth and thats it. No risk of addicition with him.

OneHandSetters...I have had four different spinal surgeries with eight fusions. I would suggest doing whatever PT your surgeon asks of you. This (and a good surgeon) are the key to getting better. Some heal faster than others, so do your best to give yourself proper time to heal. If I can help in anyway, then please let me know. I had paralysis in both legs last summer/fall and it was very scary for me. I haven't been able to trap in years and didn't get to hunt last year. This will be my first back in the woods. I have had to go to a .243 and a crossbow, but that works for me. I'm just looking forward to getting out in the woods. My neurosurgeon told me walking is a priority and I agreed... following his directions the best I could. I can say now, that I am glad I waited, even though it was not easy. Hope this helps. Prayers sent.

Happy Trails and God Bless! Cary
