    Re: What is Laminectomy ?

    Lenin my man, I had spondylolisthesis before my surgery. But yeah Im not sure on this back surgery stuff either, BUT I can say I am better now than before my injury, The pain isnt as bad, as before, But it still hurts like heck.I tried visits with other oss and neurosurgeons , NO ONE will see me ! If I sue my surgeon, I will be up creek without that paddle. I really dont think I could or would sue him anyway. He has to eat to..

    Re: What is Laminectomy ?

    Hey Fly,, When and if I go to your Dr. Do I tell Deb Flyonthewall sent me,,lol I see your post was deleted, Hope you didnt get punished for that. I dont understand WHY you cant post Dr.'s names on here ? You would think that would help alot of people out here looking for a good Doc.
    I planted 3 tree's for my wife yesterday, Man what a ruff night it was, My wife always screaming at me, to stop doin things, I cant stand not doin anything, I feel worthless, I was always doing stuff before my injury, You could say I was a workaholic. Now Im just ???? Thanks Fly.

    I tried. I already told Deb I didn't know your name. She'll understand. She said they will be there Monday. My neighbor called to reschedule an appointment for her son and she can't stop talking about how nice they were to her over the phone.

    Shawley,
    If you stop by there Monday ask for a business card. That's your excuse for stopping in---no strings.

    What kind of doctor finally told you that? Regardless, you could still pick up the business card for your files.

    Re: What is Laminectomy ?

    [QUOTE=shawley]Fly,
    Sorry for sounding stupid, But what is a OR ? ( operation report ) ?
    And do you think my surgeon will take out the screw ? Here is my full report.
    "Again the pedical screws are noted at the L4-5 levels with a short segment harrington rods. Note is now made of a fracture in the right pedical screw at the L5 level. The laminectomy defect is again noted. The disc narrowing at the L4-5 . And L5-S1 remains stable with slight grade 1 spondylolisthesis of L4 on L5 " I have most pain in my left hip and leg. My screw is broke on the right ???? Thanks Fly,

    Thanks alot Lenin.[/QUOTE]

    OR means or as Fly is referring to is "Operating Room" notes....more frequently known as "Surgical Notes" I ask for those after my surgery.... they are the notes of what the Doctor did step by step during your surgery.

    Hope that helped...Take Care

    TRose

    Re: What is Laminectomy ?

    Fly, Im waiting for your doctor to call me , Im going to see him, I think I will ask for a July visit, If he can see me. I felt stupid when I walked in his office yesterday, I ask who was Deb, They looked at me and said who wants to know . Then I told them the story, They knew who you were. I hope I get some help some where, Jeez. What is he doin for you ? Every doctor I see, (Never a spine specialist or back doctor) wants to inject me or therapy , Im sick of it, Im sure you know what I am talking about. Talk at you later. bye

    Re: What is Laminectomy ?

    I've never spoken to him on the phone---did they say he would call? Did you get the card? Did you read it? A 'second opinion' couldn't hurt. Just take all your pictures with you. I did, and he was ready to schedule surgery the day I met him. He did a laminectomy and fused me posterolateral from L3-S1 with BMP on sponges on 6/15. I also have 2 rods and 8 screws. My back is doing great! I'm going in for a hysterectomy next week but that has nothing to do with my spine.
