... 85% of herniated disks resolve on their own within 12 weeks. Usually anti-inflamatories and rest (as in not bending/lifting/twising) will do it. Then there are those who are a bit more stubborn who may be helped with an epidural injection and/or physical therapy. If there is weakness in a leg/foot, or if the pain is unbearable, surgery may be the best option. There is a... (3 replies)

... Hi guys. Question: I have read on here that alternating heat with cold helps. One flushes the blood out of the disk area and one flushes in fresh blood. Which does which?

... My disk was torn top to bottom and I was told no bending for 8 months, or I'd reherniate. I don't konw what surgery you had. But a microdisectomy does not repair your disk. It only removes the disk piece that is bulging out. That is so that the disk can then scar over. ... (4 replies)
... I found this website today and it's great to hear of other experiences- I am on day 9 post-op for microdisectomy of my T12/L1 - i haven't found anyone else who has had surgery at similar place on spine - they all seem to be low down - mine is in the middle of my spine and has been very successful so far - i have discomfort around the wound but no more pain- so obviously it...

I will keep you posted. :wave: Alan: Thanks for responding! I'll do some research on the topic, & let you know what I find. As for the cyst, I've already began researching,- I... (17 replies)
... Steve--As you'll see here, people's experiences with post-surgical pain are _extremely_ various. From what you described, it sounds like your surgery involved quite a bit more than a "classic" microdisectomy, with lots of careful separation between disk and nerve. One would expect this to be a tougher--maybe a much tougher--period of recovery than the "simple" cases (which... (5 replies)
