Complications: A person can experience complications after a surgery of any kind. The most common complications after a laminectomy include infection, CSF leak, nerve root injury, hematoma formation and failure to improve from surgery. These risks are all fairly low but must be recognized as possibilities associated with surgery.

Follow MD's advice: If your doctor prescribed the medications to be taken as you indicated, it should be okay. If you have questions, consult with your prescribing physician or your pharmacist.

Consult a eye doctor: You may have a palsy of one of the cranial nerves causing dysconjugation of gaze. A formal eye exam will be able to rule out a nerve injury as a cause of the symptom. If it is a nerve injury, it may be temporary & treatable with an eye patch over the affected eye for a period of a few weeks. Ultimately, you need to consult a specialist for a full eval to determine the cause & the right treatment.
