C3-C6 Laminectomy With Nerve Root Decompression, Has Anyone Had This And Had Relief?

C3-C6 Laminectomy With Nerve Root Decompression, Has Anyone Had This And Had Relief?

I am scheduled to have a C3-C6 laminectomy with nerve root compression next week and I'm a bit anxious. Has anyone had this and did it relieve your neck/shoulder pain? I had an epidural two months ago and it helped some but still losing function of my right arm due to pain. Any feedback is appreciated!

I had c5 fusion not long ago went through the front of my neck , pain was tolerable with drugs the only weird thing that happened to me was I got frozen shoulder in my right bc of the position they put you in sitting up shoulders back ! I guess that’s what did it but steroids after fixed me up ! Good luck 🍀 and I hope you get to be pain free !
