failed back surgery?

I had a MI L4-L5 Laminectomy 4 weeks today and still have the exact pain and worse as I did prior to surgery.  I am healthy and fit and have complied with all post op instructions.  What's going on? Please help.

It is very important that you contact your Dr for his help.  Good luck

a year ago I was where you are today, and it takes a long time to get over this surgery, give yourself some time. it was a good 10 months before I felt 'normal' again and its a new normal anyhow. it will get better. in the mean time, call the dr, but really time is all you probably need, and prayer. your in my prayers tonight.
