Back Problems board

Hi Angelia, I did not have the laminectomy, but understand the process of it quite well. They went in around the nerve area there at L4/L5 (where I was fused) to make more room for the nerves and I am sure that has your nerves all irritated around there right now. It is going to take some time for those to calm back down and heal from being crimped in that area for awhile.

Has the doctor mentioned putting you on any nerve medication to help relieve your nerve pain? Neurontin, Lyrica, Topomax, etc. If not, maybe you can call him and request trying it to see if it helps. Especially if it's interrupting your sleep alot.

I hope it settles down for you soon. Hang in there. Take care. Tammy:wave:
