When I saw the neurosurgeon yesterday my head was spinning from all of the info he gave me, not to mention the pain from the 3 hour ride in the car. I will post the full version in Intros, but here's the basics. I had laminectomy at L3/4 in March 06 and it is Herniated again (thecal sac narrowed to 4mm). I don't remember the name he gave the surgery which makes it very hard to google! Lol! He said it would be a small incision on my back, with something cut out and then a small "pouch" or something filled with something and crushed bone would be inserted. They said expect 6 month recovery. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?? The surgeon is one of the top in the country and known for using innovative methods. I'm going to call them tomorrow with questions, but would really appreciate any input any of you could give. Thanks!
By the way, I'm not really an idiot! Just a little overwhelmed right now and its definitely affecting my thinking! Lol!!
