I have been reading on here and another forum about the vast amount of people who have had multiple microdisc surgeries who eventually have fusions of the same area.
I know one gentleman personally who is one of these statistics after multiple microdiscs done he finally had the fusion. He said to me that he should have gone through this earlier and not have to waste months even years of hoping for recovery.
What I am wondering is what is the % on here that has had the microdiscs done and have had to further have a fusion. Also, has the fusion helped you?
I may be naive but in my case that procedure was not even discussed and am just wondering if the surgeons who are doing them are just wanting to cash in as were to say on peoples miseries?
I know when I was doing the protocol regimented by my MVA insurance there was a standard used that said a disc can and will most likely regenerate itself in upto 18months and also wondering if this (the healing or regeneration of disc) is still a norm? In my instance it was not true but am wondering if this is still being said and used for a scenario for microdiscs?
I apologize in advance if I upset any here but I believe it is an honest question and would welcome any and all criticism.
