I have been away from here for a couple of years or so, and it seems to me this forum used to have far more activity.

I did notice, when I searched for a few topics, that there has been a very different tone in some instances than I had seen before. When I was on here a lot, I almost never saw anything other than kindness and consideration, but I now come across a number of instances of people getting slammed for their questions or opinions.

Anyway, I just wondered if anyone knew why there is so little activity here these days. I hope it just means that everyone is having such successful surgeries and so much confidence going into them that they don't need to be posting on here.

The number of posts ebbs and flows, but the forum is still active. Several of the other forums in which I participate have had very few posts, so it may just be that people are finding other things to take up their time.

I'm not going to comment on your observation about the tone. We have no no issues for at least several months.

i haven't noticed any unkind or mean attitudes or responses
in quite a long while...if anything, there have been more kind and
compassionate exchanges....
so i am not sure what is being referred to....

What I saw was in some threads from earlier this year. I was searching a particular topic and found some very unpleasant exchanges with a lot of name calling and insults. I am glad that is not something that has become commonplace.

Hi, this isn't on the subject you were referring to, but a question I have for you. What is a "foramenotomie? I spelled it wrong I'm sure! Anyway, I see it was done in 2014, (L3/S1)and on the signature you posted. Never heard of it and am very curious. Information is so good, as it may refer to something one of us are having problems with. Hope you are doing well! Linda

Linda... Foraminotomy is a form of decompression. If you Google Foraminotomy +animation, you should get some videos of what's done.

Yes, I had new stenosis built up after the laminectomies 2 years prior. So this was another decompression procedure to open up the neural foramen and get pressure off a pinched nerve. Didn't work, oh well...
