I am 28 years old, and last year I had a microdisectomy on L4-L5 disc. I had been dealing with the pain and going to PT for 4 years prior to discovering I had a herniated disc. I have recently started to have pain again (that kind that makes you unable to stand up straight, put your socks on, or even sit). I went back to the doctor, had an MRI again, and it looks as if L3-L4, L4-L5, and L5-S1 are all herniated. I am worried about spinal fusion. I want to know more about disc replacement. Anyone have any information or experiences? I am tired of the pain and having to take medications that make you look and feel like you are drunk or high. #o
