What's the recovery time after a lesion removal?

David60 Member Posts: 2 Listener
I am on a waiting list for surgery to correct Left C5/6 and C6/7 foraminal Stenosis requiring facetectomy for root decompression. I have also got a C6 Introdural Lesion/Schwannoma which requires a micrsurgical Excision. I know this will be a tricky operation to perform, i was wondering whether anyone has had a similar Lesion/Schwannoma removed and how long is the hospital recovery? Any information will be very welcome.

    Hi @David60

    Good Afternoon & Welcome.

    I am one off the Community Champion’s here at Scope.

    Unfortunately like @janer1967 above I haven’t had any experiences that you have mentioned above.

    I do hope that there are other members who would be able to help you.

    Hi @David60 - Welcome to the community from me too. I'm also unable to help from personal experience, but you might ask your GP, or your Consultant for their advice. As mentioned above, perhaps someone else may know here in the community.
    Anyway, thank you for joining us all, & please let us know how you get on, thank you. :)

    Welcome to the community @David60, I hope the surgery goes okay! It is probably best to ask the consultant about recovery time.
