Core Decompr. "CD": Cd can be done as an inpatient procedure with a short hospitalization, but there is a recent trend toward doing it on an outpatient basis. Patients are usually maintained on partial weightbearing with crutches for 6 weeks to 3 months. Other procedures have higher morbidity complications, and require more vigorous protection from weightbearing, usually 3+ mos. ...Read more

Is it a pinched nerve have pain n the front inner & side of thigh. Have pain n lower back, hips, pubic bone, groin area. Can decompression help this?

Decompression can help this with or without a fusion depending on your specific image and exam. However you are very young for something like this to happen. Please be seen and evaluated. ...Read more

Not necessarily : Pain has to have a source. If the pain in the hip is still present, then you need to work with your doctor to figure out why. Maybe it's not just the hip joint, but could be coming from the lumbar spine or sacroiliac joint. A lot of times all these structures can overlap in where pain is felt. ...Read more

Can be long: Hip arthroscopy is evolving. We are learning that we need to take away more bone than we used to think. By 6 months, you should be improving. If not improving or if new symptoms arise, such as clicking, you need a new evaluation. If you are improving, hang in there. ...Read more

Surgeon has details: A "normal sex life" means different things to different people. The amount of activity one can do after surgery depends on the surgeon, the patient, and the type of activity. The website has a long description: http://ctsportsdoc.Com/publications/ch015-x4397.Pdf it says at 6 weeks, patients are advanced to full weight bearing and physical therapy is progressed to include quadriceps exercises... ...Read more

4th back surg coming is revision decompression and there is narrowing of the nerv canal. What advantage is over pain stimulator?

Depends on your : Symptoms & whether they match your imaging findings. A decompression works well for leg symptoms brought on by standing & walking relieved by sitting. Make sure you have no hip or vascular issues or a neuropathy. The success of repeat surgery generally decreases with each one. A stimulator is reversible & does not preclude further surgery. ...Read more

Could you explain what is decompression syndrome?

DCS: Decompression sickness (dcs) is also called the bends. When a diver descends in the water- pressure increases.

It could also occur in an unpressurized aircraft going to high altitude, if a halo parachutist does not. ...Read more
