My name is Dave i live in Pa im 29 and i have a disc herniation at the L4-L5 level with sciatica pain. I have been working through this pain since being hurt at wwork in Sept of 2010. I have done all the PT injections mris xrays and the kick a$$ CT DISCAGRAM what a treat.
I have had 2 opinions so far. First opinion was a fusion rom my belly using a cage and screws.
My second opinion at UPMC Pittsburgh wass a disectomy with Dynesys stabilization.
I have a wife and two children, i live a VERY active life, with my kids and hunting and fishing. I am very scared and don"t know where to turn so thats why im here. Any advice is seriously appreciated. I am on Comp through AIG if that helps in any way. Im just looking for what are my best options as well as opinions. Thank you very much. Dave
