Hello everyone :H .
I had a microdiscetomy (sp) in june, and I am now in a lot of pain like I was before the surgery, in a way worse. I am wondering if anyone has reherniated their disk again after this surgery? I have a very big feeling that I did, I am in a lot of pain. It did go away for a little while after the surgery, but the last few weeks have been bad.
I am going to see my surgeon on the 23rd, it is a week earlier than planned. I called, and told them that I am in a lot of pain. Can they see if there has been this happening through a xray? I know that I will be able to get one of those, but I will have to get approval if I need another mri. I am very worried that I will need a fusion now :T . I am very scared of that, but I can't take this pain anymore.
Any ideas would be great. I got hurt on the job almost 5 years ago. I waited a long time to get surgery, I tried all of the non-invasive surgery, injections before I decided to do surgery. I now feel like I did a big mess of things. I did my best not to bend, lift for awhile, but I am a mom. I can't not do that forever, and I thought that I was okay to start back to my normal life, but I see that wasn't true!!!!!
