Exploration of previous laminectomy with partial l3l laminectomy, complete laminectomy at s1, partial laminectomy at s2 ,with intradural detethering of spinal nerve roots and resection of intradural mass.I hadw this done 11/30/2015. it was a seven hr surgery.. I'm still having pain ..have any one else had any of these issues would love to hear about your story..ty..


  • to be still having pain from this surgery which was about 2 weeks ago. It's one of the reasons you probably still have a good supply of pain medications?

    Remember your nerves were somewhat irritated and damaged by the problem you had that caused you to need surgery. Then, during the surgery the Surgeon had to get close to nerves, which causes more nerve irritation. It takes a long time for the nerve to then heal and stop being irritated and inflamed.
    I had a discectomy and a fusion and it took about 4 weeks for the pain to reduce greatly. I still have some pain , but it is very manageable.
