Hello everyone I am new at this website blog. My name is Albert and I had a laminectomy surgery back in october. I have been reading this website before my surgery and find it very supportive for people like us that are going thru the pain and symtoms of back problems. In my case I was injured at work back in april they determined I had two herniated disk in my lower L4-L5 section of the lumbar spine. I went to therapy for five months with all kinds of meds, but that did not work. Workers comp then sent me to another spinal specialist wich then was sent for an hd mri. the mri revieled that i had a far lateral herniation. The doctor then recomended me to have a microdicectomy wich should have been minimal surgery same day proceedure. When i arrived at hospital for surgery i was preped and then taken to surgery. when i woke up my wife said the doctor explained my case was severe and that i was given a laminectomy with a six inch incision down my spine. I went home after two days, he infomed my wife my herniation was very large and was there for a very long time. I then was very fustrated because i was under the impression its to be very minimum surgery and when i found out thru surgery report that all these muscle, tissue and bone where removed due to the surgery. The surgery was non painfull because of the anestetics that where given ,when i arrived home after surgery i was in so much pain and the medication does not work. I am now two months into it and still feel the same symtoms that i felt befor i went into surgery and to put the icing on the cake i have new symtpoms any input?
