I am new to this forum.
Three years ago I had an ACDF C4-7. This Friday I will have a laminectomy of C3-4, posterior approach.
I would like to hear from anyone else who has had a laminectomy. My doctor says it will be an outpatient surgery (go home the same day) and he expects a pretty quick recovery. I have heard that the posterior approach is more painful than the ACDF, since they must cut through muscle.
Can anyone address the recovery period? What should I prepare for?
Thanks, No escape from reality
