I had a lower back operation about 7 years ago. It was not totally successful. I have had continious pain with right leg numbness. The pain is not bad enough to require medication but does keep me much more non-active than I would prefer. Upon completion of my operation my neurosurgen made a comment while reviewing my post op MRI that disturbed me. He actually said, " Hmmm, I must have missed that. Well, you can't get it all". This was in reference to the herniated disk. He then went into a discussion of possible further exploritory surgery. Nothing was done but brings me to the present with my question. I noticed a new procedure called AXIALIF in todays local newspaper. I called and made an appointment with the Orthapedic surgen to see if I might be a candidate to get my lower back somewhat reversed and back to a better condition. Any comments on this. I am a bit gun shy on getting back on the table.
