Hi guys, I'm a 37 y.o. male who is four months postop from my second micro-d at L5-S1(the first was 5/08). I am still having a good deal of back pain and left leg pain. My neuro suggested a L5-S1 Plif due to my symptoms and congenital stenosis in the area. He sent me for an EMG and it showed some old "recovering" damage and nothing acute. I've had two failed surgeries within a four month period and am having a real hard time trying to wrap my brain around a third. Does anyone have some input/advice regarding having the surgery vs. not having the surgery. I would appreciate anything that would help me in my decision making process.
