Went to see the neurosurgeon this morning.
My tests results show some instability of the spine on top of a few other issues. Issues that he admitted were complex.
First thing we are having to do is do a laminectomy with decompression.
Second, at a later date, would be a multi-level spinal fusion.
Part of the issue with that would be a single level left in between fusions below and above. Which would be putting more stress on an already deteriorated disc/vertebra.
But for now, we have to deal with the smallest of the issues.
I will get a call from the surgery scheduler for the surgeon and get the ball rolling. I would kind of rather do it before the end of the year but with that being like 2 weeks away I am not sure that will happen. But, we will see.
The weird thing is they do these outpatient now! I mean I have had a laminectomy before and it sure as hell wasn’t outpatient.
But that was over 20 years ago, lol. I guess that’s a good thing.
Keeping fingers crossed…
