I have had two surgeries so far: cervical laminectomy 2 years ago, lumbar laminectomy this past May. My first surgery was to relieve pressure on nerve roots in my cervical spine and thus relieve paine in my arms and fingers.
So far I have had no relief in the pain in my arms and hands. Before my lumbar surgery this past May my new Neurosurgeon said there was still pressure in nerve roots in my cervical spine. At the time he suggested I have a two level discectomy/fusion to alleviate this pain. My lumbar surgery did relieve some pain in my right leg, but only some. It did cause considerably more pain in my lower back.
What are others experiences who've had these surgeries?
Thanks in advance,
