I am new here and have only posted a few times. I am nervous and very anxious to have use of my left leg again after surgery. I have not been able to walk or do anything but
writhe and scream in pain for weeks now.
My biggest fear and I guess the reason for my post is, what if it happens again? This is 2nd surgery on same disc L5=S1.
He didnt want to do a fusion at level L5 becuae i also have a bulding disc at L4 and it would have to be a double fusion, which he says he doesnt want to put me through at my age (38). What are the chances of this disc rupturing again? Thanks for any insight and support. I love spine-health boards and website...so much good info and nice people here. Pray for me please.
