Hello to everyone on this wonderful site. I have one question regarding post microdiscectomy status. I have a large L5-S1 herniation, responsible for moderate to severe pain in my left leg. The L3 and L4 discs, together with the herniated one are a little bit dessicated (looking more black than the others). I wonder whether they will blow out later if I operate the l5-s1 because of more load getting on them. This is one of my biggest fears of surgery. I welcome any opinion here. Thank you!
