I too am scheduled for this procedure and am concerned about the recovery. Did you have the procedure done yet? If so can you tell me about the recovery? How long were you off work, how was the pain after surgery, that type of thing. Thanks

  • No one responded. If you find out anything please let me know. I still need to have it done. Thanks.Just had one leg done. Could walk very short distances the day of surgery. Pain when moving, no pain when resting with leg raised on a pillow. 11 days now, just had staples removed, walking is easier but you cannot stand still or sit for more than seconds without having to lift your leg up to alleviate the pain. Seems to be getting better every day but back is sore from laying for so long. Heating pad is helpful, mostly for back. Could be worse but sucks. This surgery allows your body to get plenty of rest because the only comfort comes while laying down with your leg raised. I never gave my body a rest before so there are benefits to having to have this done. Think positive and it is a snap.
