I have been diagnosed with stenosis and in 2007 I had 2 laminectomies, the first was l4-5 and then 6 months later I had l5-s1 done, along with a foramenectomy. Both of these were done to the right of my spine.
6 weeks ago I had another laminectomy done to the left of my spine at l4-5. I have been to see my surgeon for a check-up today and described how I've been feeling. He has reviewed my mri scans and told me that I have further narrowing to the right of my spine at l4-5. I was gob-smacked, I asked if it was unusual for this to happen within 2 years of decompression, he said he had known it before but I it could be that he didn't want to be seen to criticise someone elses work.
Was I being naive in thinking that the laminectomies would solve the problem in the long-term, is it a short-term solution or am I just *(&^ing unlucky???
