    Decompressive Laminectomy w/ modified Gill procedure L4-5

    After a year of back pain, 7 epidurals and one radiofrequency surgery procedure I'm told I have broken/cracked vertebrae and a "free fragment" of a bulging disc on the right side, both at L4-5.

    I'm scheduled in July for a decompressive lumbar laminectomy with a modified Gill procedure L4-5 on the left side. I have constant pain in my lower back and left leg but nothing really on the right side. Am I getting into more trouble down the road trying to correct my pain with these procedures? Can anyone tell me what to expect after this procedure?
