I am six weeks out of surgery. I had a posterior hemilaminectomy c6c7 without fusion. The Dr. just took out the 2 herniated discs and made more room in there from what I understand.
Has anyone had this procedure? Everyone I know has had anterior with fusion. I'm still in pain and not where I went to be. I did see a pain specialist, as surgeon said all is healing well. He said I could have pain for another year and we are just trying to manage the pain with nerve meds.
I thought this was minimally invasive and back to life after two weeks. Not at all....
