Hello, and thank you for having this discussion board. in a couple of weeks i will have posterior Cervical Laminectomy with fusion of the C2/C3, C3/C4,C4/C5 and C5/C6.
I am not experiencing any pain, but numbness in my feet and balance problems. The hope is the decompression of the spinal cord will stop any further progression or injury to the spinal cord.
I am interested in hearing about others experience and recovery. Ive had three ACl surgeries, but this surgery has me scared. I just met with the surgeon today and he reviewed all the possible risks. I know they are rare, but frighting to say the least. He also alerted me to high pain, as there is deep muscle that is cut into. I'll spend a few days inpatient and be in a neck brace for 3 months.
Anyone who can share their experience is welcomed. how was your recovery? any problems? how was the pain ? I know pain is different for each, but I'm interested to hear.
