I am a 29 yo f. Been having horrible leg pain since December 08. MRI was done in March after being incorrectly diagnosed with hip bursitis. Now i'm being told I need a microdiskectomy L4-5 and a hemilaminectomy. Some days I feel fine, but when I feel bad, I feel bad. I would like to discuss surgery with anyone who has had it as three neurosurgeons have now indicated that conservative treatments like PT and NSAIDS are not an option in my case. I still don't fully comprehend the whole diagnosis, all I know is that I want to rip my leg off most days. Any advice, info, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
