Hi just a question for everyone willing to give there input. Iam 25 years old and have DDD. Ive had an emergency discectomy at L4-L5 because of Cauda Equina syndrome and that was back in June 2008. Then three months later i had another MRI and the same L4-L5 was pushing back in 4mm. Along with alot of other discs.(L5-S1,L4-L5,T9-T10,T10-T11, and T11-T12) These are most of the problematic discs. Anyway now 13 months later Iam scheduled for a 360 fusion on my L5-S1 and L4-L5. So my question is does anyone know if I can get disability through the social security office? I mean can I get it for any amount of time even if it is just from 1st surgery until after recovery of my second surgery(360 fusion) which should be towards the end of August.
