Deja Vu All Over Again

As some may remember last March I underwent a Decompressive Laminectomy on L4 and L5 due to stenosis and bone spurs. The recovery was quick and good but there were still some lingering issues with numbness on the face of my thighs if I stood or walked for very long periods. This has progressively gotten worse so back to the doc following another MRI in September. He sees nothing unusual except one nerve root looked a bit "tight" where it left the spine, possibly due to inflammation. Tried a steroid injection at the spine - root junction and it changed the condition but did not eliminate it.

I went back to see him again a few weeks ago and he wanted to try a Myelogram where they inject dye into the Dura of the spine and watch where it doesn't flow. This indicates pinched nerves and the test was a precursor to the MRI before it was developed. Interesting procedure as I was awake for it. When the dye was injected it felt like cold water flowing down the inside of my right butt cheek, weird. Later I felt like I had been hit with a baseball bat.

Bottom line is I have stenosis and bone spurs again only on L2 and L3. It was likely there all along but did not show on the MRIs I had. Good news is the surgery should eliminate my remaining issues and recovery should as quick as it was earlier this year. With the surgery scheduled for the 19th of January, I should be up and riding again by the time Spring Training Camp in the Smokies happens in April.

Sorry to hear of this inconvenience but am glad it's nothing more serious.

You are in my thoughts and prayers and can't wait to see you two at STC!!

Geez, John. This one should be free, right? I mean, even BMW guarantees their work for 2 years. Or maybe that's just the parts that are guaranteed. Either way - best wishes for another (FINAL) speedy recovery. You know the drill.

Re: Deja Vu All Over Again

Wow John! Hope this is the real culprit and they can fix it once and for all. Having been through two Lower Back surgeries over the decades (both involving L4-L5 area) for ruptured discs, I can sympathize. I can also tell you that tremendous strides have been made in the techniques and I predict you will be up & about sooner than you expect!

Good Luck!

Re: Deja Vu All Over Again

Despite the hand sanitizer and every thing else I appear to have contracted either the flu (yeah had the 35% effective shot) or a bad cold. Still going in tomorrow just so they can turn me down for the surgery.

Re: Deja Vu All Over Again

Pretty much off the pain meds for now and I have started walking for exercise. I feel pretty good and now just have to wait for everything to heal back up so I can start PT. I get the staples out next Tuesday so that is the next milestone. I may be able to start driving a little then.

Re: Deja Vu All Over Again

Yeah! 21 staples came out today and I am cleared for light wrenching. 4 more weeks of taking it easy and I start PT. Then another 3-6 weeks before I can ride again but I can go back to work next Monday! I am a happy camper.

That was all I could do for the last two weeks!

At least today I swapped out the left switch cluster on my K1300GT. Felt good to work on a bike again.

Re: Deja Vu All Over Again

Final update. Back in the saddle again. Got out on the GT Sunday, Monday afternoon; to work and home today. It sure felt mighty good to be riding again.

And if Brett is watching - Jean and I will ride the LT up to Granny Fishes House Saturday for lunch.

Re: Deja Vu All Over Again

Happy to see you could get out there
I was tempted yesterday with 70 but today back to lower 40's
So I figured I will use some extra time to strengthen my clutch fingers and get more torque in the elbow.
ride safe
