Default Tramp Stamp Removal

Just kidding.

But I am having unexpected back surgery next week. Things have escalated rather quickly for me over the past month.

I started having left leg pain back in September. I donít know what caused it. I just know I hurt. I went to the chiropractor for about 2 months, then PCP, did oral and steroid injections, physical therapy, inversion table... finally went for an MRI after no relief. I have a large herniated disc that pressing against my S1 nerve root which causes the sciatica in my left leg. I followed up with a neurosurgeon who relayed I could have deficits that ruin my career if it herniated more. I did decompression and went to an airrosti. They expedited my surgery from late June to next week. Iím going to a second neurosurgeon today for a second opinion. My primary neurosurgeon is wanting to do a discectomy to relieve pressure from my nerve root. I just know Iím in constant pain.

Feel like the weight of the world is on my shoulders. I can barely put pants on to make it to work... trouble mowing my yard... cleaning or picking anything up... sneezing... but Gods got a plan.

If itís not one thing itís another.

Iíve been placed on light duty at work. Recovery is going to take at least 6 weeks.

Not looking for anyoneís horror stories. With the severity of my injury... surgery is best. Just send one up for me to the big Man upstairs if you will.

Once you get it fixed, find some activity to keep it stretched out. After watching Nolan Ryan riding a stationary bike between innings to keep his back loose, I started riding a mountain bike. To old for technical stuff, basically just trail riding. Losing weight and bike riding, I don't have lower back issues anymore. Of course I do have this other back thing going on, but its not related to my lower back.

Iíve had 3 surgeries, all at the lumbar level. One of the surgeries was a ďre-doĒ because I didnít follow doctors orders to the letter during recuperation. You will find that there is immediate relief and youíll be tempted to do more than you should. Donít!!!!!

I'll add you to my prayer list.

I have a similar issue, only my disk isnt really herniated. Its Degenerative in nature. Both L4 and 5 are beyond 50% eroded and my neuro wanted to do full disk replacement on both with a artificial disk made of titanium bases that swivel on teflon cushions. I opted out because i am so young.
But i absolutely know the pain you are feeling. It has crippled me off and on for the last 10 years.

Hope all goes well with your surgery. If you don't mind me asking, who is going to do the surgery? Texas Brain and Spine in CS is who I am seeing. They seem like a great institution and have good reviews. It wont be long before I eventually have it.

They do this all the time, if your insurance allows, ask about an intraoperative monitor. It may already be in the plan for the surgeon. This person puts electrodes on your wrists and ankles and a few in the muscles corresponding to whichever nerve the surgeon is working around and can inform the surgeon real time if there is any nerve irritation to avoid damage. It may not be a big deal since its "just" a discetomy and not combined with a fusion.

Hopefully they can do a microdiscectomy which is a very small incision and all the work is done through a microscope of sorts. Surgery is only a couple hours at most.

Good luck

Had the same thing the last 4 years. Went thru all the stuff before surgery just like you. Two ruptured discs and had my surgery last August 1. Walked out of the hospital the same day. First 5 days suck! I walked a lot that first week! That sped the healing time up. Day 7 my son and I went on a ram hunt and walked several miles. Almost a year later and I’m still 100% pain free. So mad I didn’t do it sooner. You’ll be glad you got it done!

Dadgummit, Steph! Hope you get total relief from this! Get a second opinion!

On your original statement, I was able to get my tramp stamp put back in its original position with an excellent artist. Mine had "expanded" over the last 10 years, and the lines had gotten blurry from the expansion. Let me know if you want the name of my tattoo artist.

I am currently recovering from a discectomy and laminectomy. I had a very similar situation as you and almost follows the same path as you. Also I had a canal that was more narrow than normal which was compounding my issue. My neurosurgeon, Dr Hoover in College Station, said my herniated disc was so bad the next thing I could face would be a wheelchair.

Tomorrow will be a month since my surgery and all my pain is gone. Itís like a miracle to me. I still have a couple numb toes and my right thigh still goes numb after standing for a while but numbness takes months to go away. Iím so glad I went and had this taken care of. Iím still light duty for 2 more months and thatís the hardest part about it.

Been there done that twice. L3-l4, l4-l5 and L5-s1 both times. Youíll feel like a new person when you wake up.

Do your PT, listen to your therapist and your body and youíll be fine. Once released from pt Iíve got no restrictions and other than occasional aches, no lasting effects

Nothing at the moment. I was in last Monday to have my sutures out and they checked my leg strength and didn't say anything about PT. I have another follow up at 6 weeks and it may come up then. I'm still in the no bending, twisting and no more that 10# pickup range.
