Possibly: There is nothing about a laminectomy that should precipitate facet pain/arthritis. But patietns with spinal stenosis who require laminectomy often have multiple back issues including facet arthritis. There could be scarring after surgery causing some pain but typically you would have some leg pain as well. After completing pt and core exercises, facet pain can easily be tested with an injeciton. ...Read more

I'm in physical therapy after surgery monteggia fracture, but still can't twist my armfor pronation/supination. Possibly my tendon/ligament torn?

I'm in physical therapy after surgery monteggia fracture, but still can't twist my armfor pronation/supination. Possibly my tendon/ligament torn?

Follow-up required: There are multiple reasons why you lack pronation/supination after a monteggia injury. Among these are- incomplete reduction of the radial head dislocation, synostosis (abnormal bony union) between the radius and ulna, injury to the posterior interosseus nerve or other nerve.

Difficult to tell without seeing your prior images, but could be an okay decision. Now, you have to consult with a well trained spine surgeon. ...Read more
