I had a laminectomy and found relief from the pain in my buttocks and legs as soon as I woke up from the surgery.

I would like to know more about what a laminectomy is. I have had one back surgery that has left me with butt, hip and leg pain sever enough to keep me from sleep or have the ability to maintain my life or work.

As I understand it they shave off some of the bone that rubs on the nerve.

Carol, on Mayo general page you can find information on procedures done. However surgery as we know is the last thing they like to do. I have spinal stenosis (neck injury) that now effects my arms, shoulders and hands. If I had the links I would post them. I hope the information I provided helps you find the information you are looking for. : )

George, the same comment to Carol I made would apply in your case also. The Mayo page has a ton of information.

George, have you tried a heating pad for relief? I do highly suggest NOT using one when you get out of the shower/tub! Wait for your body to absorb the moisture and go back to normal before using a heating pad. I know that a hot shower also helps, but it is kind of hard to stay in for a long time. The shower is a temp fix in my case. I wish I had a hot tub.
