I've been reading through the forums and decided to register.
This seems like a knowledgeable supportive community.
I had a massively herniated disc in 2006 and had a successful micro-discectomy at L5-S1.
I have reherniated at L5 and have a bulging disc at L4.
I'm trying to avoid a fusion. I'm seeing an orthopedic surgeon and trying to get referred to a physiatrist.
Right now I'm in physical therapy, on pain meds, muscle relaxants.
I have severe spinal stenois.
I look forward to participating here!
