Newer isn't always better for lumbar stenosis

To date, there are three common surgical approaches to the treatment of lumbar stenosis. Two are relatively minor treatments and one is a more complex surgical procedure.

Of the two simpler surgeries, one is a procedure called decompression, which involves widening the narrowed spinal cord. The other is simple fusion of two vertebrae together that helps relieve the pain by stabilizing the spine.

The third procedure involves fusing 3 or more vertebra together and treating both the front and the back of the spine. This operation is more extensive and complicated, but many back surgeons believe strongly that the success rates are so high that the more aggressive approach is preferred.

In a paper published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers examined the trends in treatment, complication rates and costs associated with surgery for lumbar stenosis in the Medicare population. Although the total amount of surgeries for lumbar stenosis remained consistent between 2000 and 2007, the complex procedure became the dominant approach, increasing 15 fold from 1.3 to 19.9 surgeries for every 100,000 Medicare beneficiaries.

Well the type of surgery for the gall bladder surgery is not mentioned. I presume that by naming it as minor surgery, you mean that it was Laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Regarding your 1st question what should he eat?

most diary products and faty things will upset him. my sis had her gall bladder out 5 years ago, she gets really poorly if she has cream/ice cream/butter/full fat milk any food containing these as ingrediants,also fatty foods like fried/deep fried, takaways

A close relative of mine had her gall bladder removed many years ago and she is able to eat any foods without problem. The liver will still produce the bile necessary for digestion of fat. Try a little of everything I am confident there will be no problem.
