I am getting third opinion from weill cornell.
My local surgeon is supposedly excellent but can give no assurances.
Main reason i would do it is to prevent further damage. I was told 10% get worse, 10 % are the same , and 80% have improvement. Sounds likeyou are in the 20% worse or the same, bummer.
When did u have it done?
Did surgeon screw up?

Strange story: Wife had bad back and radiating leg pain . Surgeon did basic laminectomy but also took out 3 spacers from spine Xray now shows spine completly misaligned and now pain is even much greater than before-Did removing spacers cause spinal instability
