... Hello! I had a discectomy at L4-L5 on 2-25-14 so I am just shy of 6 weeks in my recovery. Today was my first day back at work. I have a desk job and work 10 hour days.

... Welcome to the board. I would assume that a spine surgeon in Canada would be up on when a player can return to playing hockey, and I suppose I would go with his recommendation. If you were my child, I would not let you go back for six months, if then. It takes the disc that long to heal up and strengthen back to something resembling normal. It is easy for the disc to...

... Almost 8 weeks ago I had an L4-L5 discectomy surgery (not sure on spelling). I am only 16 years old and before my surgery I played a lot of sports including hockey lacrosse and soccer.

... I am 4 weeks post op from ALIF at L5-S1. I've had discectomy done twice (2002 and 2012) The last one didn't help any so we did injections and that offered no relief so it was on to the fusion. So far I haven't reached that point where I'm feeling any relief. My surgeon acted like I should have felt relief immediately. I'm still having lower back, butt, and all the way down my...

... Hi, I had a micro-d 11/21/06. It was L4-L5. I finally returned to work Feb. 26. I am not sure what the time frame is for a discectomy. I just thought I would add my thoughts. My post-op period didn't go well, because of the severe nerve compression. I am still not pain free and wear a lidocaine patch. Hopefully, all will go well with your recovery. Take care and...
