Lumbar Lamectomy

About three weeks ago had a lamectomy between my L5-S1 because of a ruptured disc. Wondering of any boaters have had similar surgeries and how long it took them to get back in the game. Thanks

L5-S1, October 15th 2012. Sounds like the same surgery. I was skiing in Feb, ran the Salt mid-March, and Westwater last weekend. Do the PT and stay religious with the core workouts and you will be back in action in no time.

P.s I'm sorry you had to go through that. I would not wish back problems on even the cruelest of humans.

Think you mean Laminectomy.
It is a surgical procedure to remove a portion of the vertebral bone called the lamina.
Have not had a laminectomy but did have a spinal fusion with two 6" rods installed in my lumbar spine.
Slow for about 6 months but unable to tell now.
Agree with following physical therapy orders.

l5-s1 fusion 3 years ago. I ski and kayak still and most everything else. Good advice on the PT. I still work core 2-3 times per week along with other stuff. Take your time, listen to your body and things should be ok soon.

Had the same procedure in 2007. Since then I have had a couple temporary problems solved with PT and oral steroids. Al in all I am happy getting it done it gave me my life back. I am a firm believer that following my doctors orders about the healing process and taking it easy for 6 months allowing what is left a chance to mend is the success of the surgery. I am back with no pain and able to sit in a kayak again. I also know others who have had it done with no problems. It took me roughly a season to get back to normal.
