Okay, My surgery is on the 13th of October and I have been reading that it is important to have a good muscle relaxer, so I want to know which one? I also want to know what pain meds worked well(in Hospital). I Can't do Dilaudid OMG i thought i was dying when they gave me that last year, could not breath..so that one is out and Morphine gave me serious itching on my head and body ~X( but doc said he can give me anti itch meds).I'm thinking Demerol will that help? I would like to know what worked for most people.
I am really worried about the pain that I am facing. 4 level laminoplasty c3-c7. Also how long is the scar because my NS said about 5 to 6 inches. And how long is hospital
stay? My Ns also said I might need anterior Discectomy after this, did anyone who had Laminoplasty had to do Discectomy also? I mean is it likely that I will need to have that also? I am so freaking nervous about all of this.
Sorry for all the questions
