I thought I had better post an update to how I am doing now. It has been 7 weeks since I had the laser back surgery and I can feel an improvement every day now. At 6 weeks it felt like a switch had been thrown and I was almost better over night. I still am doing my exercises and have started walking at our local park for 25 min. Last night when I finished my walk, I had NO pain. Wow!! I am still taking some extra strength Tylenol but not sure that I really need it. I am very impressed with LSI and if anyone needs to have back surgery for spinal stenosis or ruptured or bulging discs, I think a consult with LSI would be in order. The surgeons are all skilled and American and have done many, many of these operations (I can't remember the number, but on my day of surgery, they did 15 cases and usually do 20-25--can't beat that for experience.) I have read some negative thoughts on LSI, but in my opinion after being there and going through the entire process, I am most impressed. I am thankful that I went this route. Now if only my health insurance will pay it. That is the one negative, that it is considered experimental surgery and they have denied my coverage for it. But, LSI has a great medical team that deals with these denials and has good experience in getting payment. Let's pray as we really didn't need to spend all this money right now, but my health is worth it (I guess!!!).
Thanks for reading and if you have any questions, let me know.
Hope to get back to stamping soon. I see so many pretty things on the blogs.
