Pre and Post operation advice
My Nurosurgen has deicide to try a "Posterior right L4-S1 hemilaminectomy and foraminotomy" with out fusion( I hope) if all goes as exspected. He has already done a cervical fusion, last March and I know that worked out great( sofar) but he doesnot talk much and is gone before I can ask any other advice. I found myself ( learning by doing) for many weeks after the neck fusion and was looking for any advice from anyone out there. Can anyone tell me if there is anything that help them through the recovery process that I should know about? I ha a auto accident in November of 2009 and have been repairing and in lots of different pain problems for a long time. Thanks in advance.
