I had a laminectomy/discectomy last may. I reherniated same level and scheduled for a revision this jan 11th. Had MRI yesterday and doc said my disc is gone / bone on bone rubbing and banging together and said it resembles a micro fracture.
I am assuming I will not be having a revision. I am trying to mentally prepare myself incase im told I need to be fused. Not gonna lie im scared to death and in pain. The discectomy surgery was a piece of cake. I know that's not the case for a fusion.
