Hello to all. I've been reading alot of your posts and have found them to be so helpful. I'm scheduled for a Microdiscetomy on Feb 25th. I re-herniated above my last surgery which was a L4-5-S1 Laminectomy done in June 2009. The pain forums have helped me a great deal.I'm hoping this will be my last back surgery. Started with C4-6 fusion in 2006.


  • I hope this surgery is successful and you heal completely. It looks like you've been through a lot already. This is a great place for support and info. Take care. Charry
