I have cervical myelopathy at c6, 7 and T1. I am 68 year old female.I am having a posterior cervical laminectomy next week in Houston. Main noticeable symptom is my gait, balance, clumsiness and spastic walking and my slowness. I am on a walker. I have shoulder pain, arm pain and recently bladder problems are developing. Walking probs have been with me over 3 months.
My question is if anyone has been in this situation and if so, could you walk normally after the surgery? The surgeon is encouraging.
