I have surgery next Thursday July 24th. I'm having a laminectomy. My surgeon said it was a Laminectomy/Microdiscectomy but when I got the approval in the mail it just said Laminectomy. I thought he was removing some pieces of the disc that had broken off but when I looked up Laminectomy it didn't say anything about the disc. It just said bone was removed. I'm a little confused and pretty nervous but I know I have a good surgeon. I'm not sure what I should do ahead of time to stay calm and be ready.
