Has anyone had a lumbar laminectomy without any of the other issues? My doctor is recommending I have this done at L3-L5 due to severe stenosis. I am wondering about recovery time. He is telling me some patients are back to work in 2 weeks but I find that hard to believe. Any thoughts or expierences would be appreciated.
2004 - 2005 - 3 surgeries in 18 months to fix/fuse C6-C7.
Nov 2013 - Laminectomy from L3 to S1
Nov 2014 - Micro Discectomy L4 L5.
