Hi, new to site, in the UK but looking for something like this site where people who have been through the same & or similar. While writing this I'm recovering from surgery on 26th march 2009, I had left L4 & L5 microdiscetomy. This is 2nd back operation as I had L5 S1 lamanectomy in June 2003, suffered since 2000 & waiting a long time for someone to redo the operation but when surgeon checked it was different to what I'd had done. Father has problems & sister has problems with muscle wasting away, doctors think its genetic? What do other think.


  • Hi biker,

    Welcome to spine-health. Although I'm not sure if your issues are genetic or not you sure have a lot going on there. We have many members from the UK who are going through the same issues as you. I do hope this recent surgery has helped you and you can get back on your feet again. Good luck and keep us posted. Look forward to reading more of your post. Once again welcome to spine-health.
