bailey17 - a question about your surgery...
I saw a post about your recent laminectomy in another thread. If you don't mind, I wanted to ask you about your surgery experience.
You said you had weakness in your leg before the surgery. I too have leg weakness. It's only been a month or so since you had the laminectomy - right? - but have you noticed an improvement in your leg weakness? From what I understand it takes a while to recover strength again, though if there is an immediate improvement after surgery I'd love to know.
How was your laminectomy different from the micro-discectomy? I'm curious why the surgeon did a laminectomy the second time instead of a micro-d. How was your recovery?
Thanks for reading :-)
