I saw my surgeon this morning. He is planning on a C-3 thru C-7 Laminectomy. I have already sustained permanent nerve damage. Neither my Neuro or my DO are guaranteeing the degree of pain relief this surgery will afford. Surgery is being done primarily to prevent further damage.
This is my understanding of the situation. My Neuro's office will be calling me tomorrow with a surgery date and time. I see my Neuro one more time several weeks before surgery for a pre-op session.
It sure has been a long time coming. I was diagnosed last June. I'm glad something will finally be done.
