Hi all! I’m re-animating this discussion as several members have been asking about and sharing their experiences with laminectomy, also known as decompression surgery. Here’s some basic info from Mayo Clinic: http://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/laminectomy/basics/definition/prc-20009521.

@robertlclark, @ladyjane85, @twokitties, @stumpy, @pamperthyself, @sharonmay7 and @dbentley will you join me on this thread? Any experiences or questions you want to share with the group?

Hi Kelsey, I would like to post on the lumbar laminectomy site but I get a “Page not found” message trying to go to that link.

@robertlclark Hmm, that’s weird. The link is working for me… let’s try it again: http://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/laminectomy/basics/definition/prc-20009521. Also, just to clarify, the link just has some basic info on laminectomy from Mayo Clinic. If you want to post about it and discuss, right here is the place to do that.

Hi everyone. I’m new here but wanted to say hello and share some of my lumbar laminectomy experience. For the last 8 years I have had peripheral neuropathy in my buttocks and lower legs/feet. I had two lumbar laminectomies with some relief. My buttocks pain went away but I still have neuropathy in my left foot and lower leg. I take Gabapentin at 900 mg daily. And I occasionally take Tramadol when I have flare up of pain. My pain is stronger when I stand or walk. I tolerate the pain but wish I could get totally pain free. I wonder if others has found other pain relief solutions. I’m also wondering if Gabapentin at 900 mg daily should be increased? Any thoughts?
