I've been wondering if it is common for a neurosurgeon to have his patient stay a few days in hospital after this surgery. I will be 57 yrs old March 26th. My Surgery is April 8th. I have type 2 diabetes.
I would be very uncomfortable going home the same day after this. What are the experiences of some of you? I've also read it is wise and common to have some kind of instrumentation put in to stabilize the spine after a laminectomy.
