3 level lami....anyone have experience?
I am due to have a 3 level laminectomy/decompression on Wednesday. There are bone spurs pressing on the spinal canal as well as narrowing the foramina at each level on both sides. They will do be L1, l2, L3. I am wondering if anyone here has had 3 level lami before and if so, how did you do? Is your spine stable or has it led to more problems?
I have a lot of old man arthur in my back, and the facet joints are in bad shape because of it. I am so worried about more trouble in those areas that would lead to a 3 level fusion. I have had lots of surgeries, but 3 levels is new for me. I would appreciate any and all input.
Thanks so much.
