This one went fast.... hardly had time to get the pre surgery anxiety untill now. I just recieved a call from the Dr's office.
I will be having my 3 back surgery on Tuesday C6-T1 laminectomy. Wish me luck. I can hardly wait to feel my fingers on my left hand again.


  • Sorry C7-T1
  • Wow, that was quick. Are they going in posteriorly?

    Good luck on your surgery - I hope the time passes quickly for you and that the recovery isn't too bad.

    We'll look for your post-op post and hope you have good things to report, including having feeling back in your hand.

  • They are going posteriory,Should be just like the one I had at C6-C7 last year. Off to my Primary Dr for a pre-opt exam.
  • What day is your surgery? I hope it goes well and I will be very interested how you do afterwards. I am have the same the Dec. 2nd, my 2nd surgery in one year. This time C4-T2 from the back of the neck with pate, bone grafts and rods. I don't know about you but I am not looking forward to going through this but if it will improve my pain level I am ready.
    Will be thinking about you, good luck.
