I have been diagnosed with cervical stenosis based on MRI. I have been evaluated by two surgeons both agree treatment choice would be a posterior cervical laminectomy and cervical corpectomy. One doctor would one procedure on the first day and the second procedure on the third day; the other would do both procedures during one operation. My major symptom is loss of feeling in my legs when standing without movement for 10-15 minutes. Sitting down restores feeling in the legs within a few minutes. Driving a car can cause loss of feeling in right leg. No pain, just occasional stiffiness in the neck. Is it more the practice to do two separate surgies or both done at the same time? I would prefer undergoing one surgergy unless there is greater risk between all in one and separate surgeries. Anyone have information about this?. One surgeon recommends immediate surgery to prevent further damage to spinal cord due to fall or whiplash type injury. The other says "wait and watch" is not unreasonible as well. Comments based on your experience?
