Re: Microdisectomy

Brooksy1948 Welcome -
Teteri66 is right on. Definitely get more then one opinion.
I went thru the whole gamut ,PT and two series of injections before having surgery last January L4-S1 discectomy left side. I was told before surgery it would be 6 to 8 weeks recovery. It's more like 6 to 8 months. I went with a highly regarded neurosurgeon who is a spine specialist. I did get relief on my left side after the procedure, the pain and some of the weakness /numbness has gone. My problem now has moved to my right side with a vengeance. I did not re-herniate but do have other issue have became more prominent due to my body compensating (so I'm told). I went back to work at 7 weeks (mistake). I'm now back to square one, Second epidural injection tomorrow at 7:00 am. Hopefully it'll help.
Surgery's can be a crap shoot and I've been told more then once, No one has one back surgery.
This has been some of my experience to date.
There are always exceptions.
I wish you luck.
