Tammy Carnegie – Laminectomy for Herniated Spinal Disc

 

My name is Tammy. In April 2017, I had a Lower Lumbar Laminectomy (Discs 2-4 surgery) from a different medical facility. Unfortunately, my chief complaint that I had expressed to that doctor (I found out was in disc #4-5) was not treated and I was still having the same issues. So, I made an appointment with Dr. Jeffrey Carlson for a consult.

During the consult, he made me feel confident in him about what was needed to be done. The information he showed me concerning my issue allowed me to make an informed decision. I gladly made the decision to have the surgery.

Upon my post operation (post op) visit, Dr. Carlson advised me to walk. I have a treadmill in my workout room, I started out walking a mile a day then, walking/running one mile in 17 minutes (see video MP4 Dec. 04, 2019).

Upon my 6 week “post op” appointment I walked into his office, walking upright and strong.  Dr. Carlson was so pleased with that. I’m now getting Physical Therapy to help me get back to normalcy and I plan on doing my exercises and head stands again. Thank you Dr. Carlson, you are truly lead by God, I am so happy with how this surgery turned out!
