Thanks for the kind words. Is it a pretty serious surgery? That's kind of what I was trying to get my head around but couldn't really tell because in reading about other people's experiences it seems there are an endless amount of variables that can personalize the procedure. (Like how many vertebrae are involved, whether fusion or not and if so whether from bone graft or other, etc etc)
Surgeon said it went well but that the vertebrae underneath the one being treated "didn't look so hot either" but that it wasn't worth messing with yet. Just may crop up down the road...ugh...
What exactly is the laminectomy part and what was your experience like? Long term, did you get the result you were looking for? I hope the fact that you used the plural form of the word is not an indication of the lack of efficacy of the treatment.
