What causes lower back pain after laminectomy?
Hello. I have been through your question and understand your concern.
Unfortunately back pain after laminectomy will always come and go, but generally you will never be pain free. The lower extremities pain might be related to root compression at the laminectomy site, but pain in the left shoulder and wrist is not related to this. That is why your GP tested on RA and Lupus, which fortunately came back normal. At this point, since the pain gets exacerbated on movement, there must be an inflammation of the articulation (arthritis). This is supported also by the relief caused by Meloxicam. You should know that you are getting the minimum dosage. The good thing is that inflamed articulations tend to be self limiting and generally pass in a few weeks. You might need a simple Xray of you extremities to see the articulation.
Hope this helps. Wish you the best health
