35 yo with mylopathy..Help..

First time post. Very scared.. 35 yo diagnosed with myelopathy. Congenital c-spine stenosis with disk herniation. Putting off surgery for 2 yrs now but getting worse. I decided on Laminoplasy procedure. I was hoping someone has had this procedure...
Wanted to know if I will be able to be active (ski, play sports) or will I feel neck weakness or limitation after the procedure. I met another person who had this done and feels great. Is this the norm or was he lucky. I know outcomes very tremendously, but in general, what kind of life after laminoplasty can a relatively young guy, who wants to be very active again, expect.

Any input greatly appreciated.



  • I'm only 34 and I ran 36 miles a week before I injured my neck. I herniated 3 discs and my C5-C6 is pressing against my spinal cord this last Sept. I'm having the ACDF next Tuesday. I'm hoping to get back into running again after I have fused.
  • Im 29 and just got my first injection yesterday and was so nervous, felt like start of my ending. I might try the lamioplasty if it gets to bad.
