lumbar laminectomy

Hi all, I have a ruptured disc in my L5 and am schecheduled for surgery in two weeks. I am at a loss as what to expect in recovery. Also, my family has a vacation scheduled five weeks after my surgery and I am wondering if we need to schedule our vacation as we will be driving from Louisiana to Tennessee. Any information would be extremely helpful.

Thank You

Re: lumbar laminectomy

Hi there, Do you know the name of the procedure you will be undergoing? There are many different procedures and it is hard to even guess which one would be underetaken. In one way you are lucky that it is only one disc that needs repair. I would think that you would be able to go on your vacation. That is something you will need to discuss with your surgeon., Good luck. When you find out the name of the procedure come back and then we could give you some more answers. Take care. Best of luck. Jane, invertebrate
