When i was 15 i started having numbness and pain in my legs after 3 years of trying to find out what was wrong we finally found out i had a herniated disc. I tried physical theraphy and it was unsucessful. After that i went to the doctor to find out the only thing left to do was a lumbar discectomy. Im now almost seven months post my surgery and im still feeling pain in both my back and my legs. I went back to the doctors yesterday and was told im going to need a fusion. Being my age im very scared to have the surgery considering my first one did not work to well. Can anyone give me any comforting information? maybe a surgery you had that succeed? or may be that this is a bad idea?
ANY information or in put would help!
