I'm scheduled for a cervical laminectomy with posterior fusion on 11/11 at 11 AM. Anyone else with surgery in November (2013)?
I have ankylosing spondylitis and am fused throughout my spine except for C4-C6 which is what I am having fused. Now I'll be stiff as a board. Not looking forward to it, but have had total hip replacement and ankle reduction and fixation (for broken bone). But the idea of an operation in my neck is very horrifying. Especially after watching a dozen youtube videos.
Yeah, I'm scared ----less.
Cervical laminectomy, facetectomy, and foraminotomy (3-6 of each) with instrumentation and cadaver fusion due to cervical spondylotic myelopathy, radiculopathy ,and spinal cord contusion - surgery done in April 2014.
