Your Back Pain May Be Worse after Having Back Surgery
I went through a bilateral laminectomy on l4, l5, and s1. It has been three weeks and I have had a staph infection the past two weeks. I have a lot of pain on the incision area and especially on the left side. I am suppose to return to work next week but I am unable to sit in a chair for any period of time due to the pain. When I lay down it sometimes feels like there is a metal rod directly on the incision and I have to alternate just to find any comfort. Is this usual feelings following the surgery? Should I be concerned? I have tingling in my ring finger on my left hand and down my legs into my feet. I am really scared the surgery did not work and I am now going to have much worse pain in my back then before. Am I paranoid or is this what it feels like when the surgery does not work. This is a workers comp case and they are not as helpful as I would have expected.
