Just wondering what your opinions are on pain after a discectomy. I had surgery in Aug. 09 and I still have pain that moves around. I have came to the conclusion that the pain I still have is from the damaged or remaining buldged disc that could not be removed because it was directly in front of my spinal cord.
What do you think the chances are of the remaining portion of the buldged disc to wear down or back away from my nerves? Im thinking about further surgery but not at the point of saying that I can't take anymore and trying a fusion for fear of being made worse. If there is a chance that in time that the disc will wear away from my nerves im not ready for a fusion at all.
