My name is Alison, I am 23 and I just had a discectomy/laminectomy on L5, S1, and S2 just two days ago on the 6th. It started with severe back pain in June 09, and from there they did an xray, and an MRI which revealed that I had a fracture caused by disc herniations. I am 2 days post op and looking for information and people that can relate to me, with recovery and getting back on track. I look forward to meeting you all!


  • I am so sorry for your issues. I was your age when my problems started.

    I trust that the surgery will give you some relief.

    Hope your feeling better! David
