Question regarding laser spine surgery for stenosis, buldging disc, nerve impingement?

I ask a question 5 days ago regarding information on laser spine surgery. WELL...I am 2 days post operative and the nerve pain is GONE!! All I see are smiles, looks of relief on patients faces and I am one of those. I walked, pain free, out of the clinic on the day of the procedure. I am to have a 2nd procedure on the 3rd as I had 2 levels of injury. Conventional surgeons wanted to do 2 fusions, 1 yr recovery and never the same. Best decision I ever made.

    well,i dont understand what u want and what answer to give to ur question..

    so, as far as i think,there is one..

    Foraminotomy is a medical operation used to relieve pressure on nerves that are being compressed by the intervertebral foramina, the passages through the bones of the vertebrae of the spine that pass nerve bundles to the body from the spinal cord.

    One example of a foraminotomy is a keyhole foraminotomy. This is a minimally invasive procedure in which an incision is made in the back of the neck, the muscle peeled away to reveal the bone underneath, and a small hole cut into the vertebra itself. Through this hole, the foramen can be visualized, and the impinging bone or disk material removed.

    hope this helps..

    Well Blind People have Good Senses in other respects-if she hasn't flown yet I don't think she will even if you do look like Quasimodo after a Car Wreck-it will give her something to laugh about at least. If you can hold your own and I'm pretty certain you can.
