Failed Lumbar Laminectomy
Sept. 27 I had a Laminectomy on my L-3 which was supposed to relieve my sciatic pain immediately according to my surgeon. I suffer from DDD, Spinal Stenosis and a herniated disc. It has been 11 days since the surgery and the sciatic pain is at and sometimes above the level it was pre surgery. I have trouble walking like I did before and I am no longer active. This surgeon told me he had done 1,000 (roughly) of these procedures and no one has had a problem. So what?....I'm the lucky one? I have another MRI scheduled for October 17. But I want names of surgeons that others have used and trusted where the procedures have actually worked. I Live in Ohio and don't mind traveling Cleveland. Please help. I already have a piece of my spine missing. I have one shot at this left....Thanks.
