Recovering from Back Surgery

  • The above is not my image but is a general image of a synovial cyst in the lumbar region
  • My cyst was at L2/L3 and was 10 mm (.27 inches) in size
  • The symptoms were manifold: pain in stepping with my right foot, weakness in right thigh, and pain in the back
  • I had the surgery yesterday at Abbott Northwestern at 8:30 am
  • I came home today at noonish
  • I have a 3" incision in my back w 12 stitches
  • I am not uncomfortable except when I move.
  • I'm supposed to lay low for 2 weeks until the stitches come out.
