I've decided to go ahead with surgery, for I believe my stem cell treatment won't eliminate the herniation. I hope it will help with the degeneration though!
I have an L4/5 Protrusion and DDD with sciatica down both legs, mainly the left. I am 23 years old.
I had a few questions though:
1. What type of activity level will I be able to do after this procedure? Will I be able to do sports, etc?
2. What is recovery like?
3. Is it really an outpatient procedure? Or is more of a 'we'll send you home and you can suffer there' kind of thing?
I am doing it with Dr. C. in Los Angeles, one of the pioneers of the procedure. Any comments about him?
Wish me luck!
