Second discectomy
Aug 13, 2004
I am scheduled for a second surgery on the 20th of August. I am wondering about the recovery. Has anyone had this done twice? I have been told that the second time may not be as easy to recover from as the first. Is this true? I am a teacher and am wondering just how long I will have to be out. It is for the L5-S1. That seems to be the board favorite. I wonder why this disc is so easily injured. I have no idea how it even happend this time. Please fill me in on the recovery process. I had the first surgery 2 and a half years ago, the recovery then was so quick and easy. I was walking a mile a night 2 weeks after. I am hopeful for the same type of situation.
