Failed ACDF 5-7 now scheduled for posterior laminectomy and latereal mass instrumentation
I have a failed two level ACDF C5-7. Now next week I am scheduled to have a laminectomy at C-4 with lateral mass instrumentation at C5-7. I'm very nervous. Not really sure what to expect. The ACDF, I felt was a breeze to recover from. However once my bones collapsed into the cages and severe elbow, and leg pain started, I knew something was wrong. I haven't been back to work in over a year. I'm a 36 year old mother with two young children. This ordeal has left me depressed with anxiety. Anyone out there have a posterior surgery similar to the one I'm having? I haven't read great recovery stories, I'm confident in my surgeon, just a bit nervous. Oh, I said that already.
