HI,I have just discoverd this sight. The surgeon at my local hospital has told me ,i have a grade four slip,and need surgery.
I'm 37 years old and have had back pain for at least fifteen years,but more recently it has started to have a bigger impact on my everday life,unless ,plenty of co co damol are taken.
I also work in construction which dosent really help matters.
It would be, much appreciated to hear from anybody in a simlar situation to my self who has had undergone surgery, and get there angle on it ,althou i realize every case is slightly different.
