Posted by bob ford @bobford, Dec 27, 2011

looking for feedback to lenghth of recovery from a laminectomy?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Spine Health Support Group.

I am about to have a decompression laminectory between L3/L4. I have had 2 TKR with the past 3 years and my knees are in constant pain. Can anyone tell me what the recovery is like for a month after surgery? Can you drive? Do you have to lie flat all the time? Any tips to make sure I do everything right so this pain is gone. I have a buldging disc pressing the nerve and on the opposite side a pouch of arthritis. Thanks for any info and tips
