    L$-L4 Fusion and Discectomy Successful yesterday, going home today

    I had my minimally invasive fusion and discectomy yesterday morning, and it is about 98% sure that I am going home this sfternoon.

    The nurses were amazed that I was up and walking an hour this am, one called me a "star patient." It is sure nice walking without pain.

    PT thinks I will get back on bike sooner than later.

    More later.

    (Can't stop watching those guys climbing out of that mine!)

    Great news but I have heard that the nurses on your ward have decided on a Keep fit programme. They get fed up with being chased around the ward by the patients.

    Best to get home and get some pampering in from the wife.

    'minimally invasive' sounds so much better than 'massively invaded'.
    Good luck with the rehab.

    Good to hear. You should still be able to play it up for a while to get some care and attention though. May as well get some mileage out of it.

    "Invasive" and "minimal" are two words that just don't belong together.
    But anyway, get out of the hospital, and heal quick.

    Your bike must be lonely, give it some lovin' soon.

    That's good news, but I doubt if any of us are surprised. You've got fitness and a good attitude; they wish all their patients were like you.

    Heal quickly, because I'm itching for a fight.

    j/k Feel better soon! We older athletes tend to heal better than most.

    that's great, now; tell me again which one is the L$?

    seriously tho, I had a not so minimally invasive fusion from L3 to L5 in April of 2005 (52 staples on two insicions). wishing now that would not have waited so long. mine was a complete success and I was back on the motorcycle 10 weeks after surgery and riding it to work every day two weeks later. I should have gotten back on the pedaling two wheeler again at the same time but just starte that again this past January after stopping 10 years ago due to the back pain. Do what the PTs tell ya and heal quickly!!
