Hi: Just found this site and am glad! Have herniated discs, stenosis, pinched nerves. Tried pain meds, epidurals,(ins co wont let me have any more) which only work for about 2 months. Pain has worsened and can hardly drive anymore. Neurosurgeon recommends laminectomy. This doctor did my son's and ex husband's surgeries successfully. Told would only be in hosp overnight then 6 weeks do nothing, then PT. How much pain will i have after surgery? Has it helped most? Scared! thanks, PsyRn
