I have had issues for a few years now and just have been doing physical therapy and medicine (through my family doctor). I was never given a hint that this might require surgery! I thought the numbness and pain was from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Ulnar Tunnel Syndrome (both of which have been "fixed"). So I have been sent to a neurosurgeon. He wants to do a laminoplasty. Has anyone else had this done? Were you able to go back to work before 3 months? I have been told that this can be quite painful, but at the end of recovery, it is well worth it.
I am going to schedule the surgery for later in the year due to work training, and for the fact that I don't want to ruin my summer! haha.
I appreciate any help! Thanks!
