Smile Laminectomy

I am having an L4-L5 laminectomy with a medal spacer put in tomorrow. I don't know what to expect nor how long recovery is but I hope the surgery is going to make a difference in the pain and numbness. I have read some of the posted messages about these procedures.

Re: Laminectomy

Welcome to the board. What a way to spend Valentine's day. Sorry no one responded before you went in. Hope the procedure went well. The first days are difficult but you will gradually feel better.

When you are out of the hospital and up to posting, let us know how you are doing. You will have questions post surgery and we're here to help.
