I think I can finally sit at the computer for a few minutes. I had a posterior foraminotomy c-8 June 24. What was to be a small cut turned into a 4". When the NS got in he couldn't get to the osteophyte that was pinching the nerve root due to my congenital fusion. He had to increase his working space and relocate the nerve. This is how it was explained to me by hubby. I knew that there was a possiability that I would wake up with something more that I signed up for. I go to the NS tomorrow for a check up and will ask him to explain what happened to me. This is a very painful surgery. I have been very good and I hope that this has helped the chronic pain that I have suffered for 1.5 years. I need to take the pain pills every 4 hours or it get pretty intense. If anyone else would like to discuss their experience with this surgery I will check in daily. I have to go I can sit here no longer. I wish I had a laptop and wireless.
