This page is about my recent neursurgery. I had a pinched nerve at the L4-L5 level , which was corrected by surgery on Monday June 24. This is a report about that surgery.

Surgery was a Success

My surgery was a success. The doctor said the nerve was very severely pinched and that the surgery should definitely provide me with some pain relief once i heal up. I"m sore and in a great deal of pain at the moment but that is to be expected. The hospital staff went out of their way to make my stay tolerable. In fact I wouldn't go any place else for surgery if I had an option after this stay, They were super. I give them a five star rating and I don't easily give those up.I know a lot of people were praying for me. I appreciate and thank every one of you. I went in on faith and came out on faith.

Glad you are healing. Judging from what I read, the surgery wasn't major, was it??? Just curious of the procedure that is all as I love to learn more about it. Was it a Key-Hole surgery or something else. Do give us an update as I actually thought it was going to have a longer recovery time as it was on the back wherein the posture would cause more trouble in healing, would you shed some light on this please???

Yes it was major surgery. I was under for four and 1/2 hours. He took out the disc between lumbar vertebra 4 and 5 and freed up the nerve root. Then he implanted my bone fragments and secured them in place with metal rods and screws. That's pretty much the gist of it. I will be in physical therapy soon..
