MANY OPTIONS: 1st q to ask: was the laminectomy appropriate tx of choice initially? Signific # of back pain pts are s/p laminectomy. Was laminectomy for stenosis or herniated disc & then u developed stenosis subsequently? Back surgeries r great if successful 1st surgery. If not, repeat surgery has very poor success rates.Natural options always better.Lose wt #1, if overwt. Then research the many other options.
