My mother underwent a (failed) laminectomy some years.
Her GP attended the surgery & reported later that her leg jumped while the surgeon was operating.

What caused this ?


  • :H Hi sweetie, I never heard of such a thing, WOW! I had a Lammie as well but thank God no problems. I hope you get answers, have a great weekend my dear. :H
    Had PLIF in 2008 and a Laminectomy. One level fusion, L4-L5.

  • I think a nerve must have been touched or damaged during the surgery to make her leg jump.

  • medically paralyzed with drugs .i think he is not being completely honest with you and trying to cover his 4R53!i would get another opinion as for what to do next
