Well, Thank God..I made it ! Surgery was @ 7:30am lasting 2 hours.The leg pain apperas to have been allieviated.Unless it's because of the medication right now. Will know for certain in some time.
The Neuro said that indications on the last MRI W/Contrast was that the L-5 had shrunken somewhat,he told me this prior to surgery.(Good thing) However, after surgery he said that when he got inside he found what he termed am "Anomoly"..Various veins&nerves entangled. He said they are seeing this more frequently and more documents and lirerature is coming out about this.He claimed he didn't want to mess w/it too much,but I think he did sever some of it.Also, I asked him specifically what he did do(aside from exactly what, about that)...
Laminotomy NOT Laminectomey ("Partial" removal of bone.)
Fissula...I think this was another term for Anomoly???
Diskectomey.."Only some disc matter"
I'm still not 100% ceratin of all facts RE proceedure as I was really groggy when he informed me after the OP.
Does anyone know anything or could shed some more light on this for me? Either way...I'm alive, appear to have Pain relief,and have help for tonight so, all is well.
Thanks to everyone who posted, supported,encouraged me,I'll never forget that,,,will keep updating !
