Hello everyone!! Well I am a mess! I was diagnois with 2 HERNIATED DISC L3-L4 and L5-S1 also 2 buldging disc with moderate stenosis ALONG WITH MODERATE DDD diease
Anyways my question is this!! IF I opt to get a MICROdiscectomy on my herniated disc because I have DDD diease is there a GOOD CHANCE ITS GOING TO FAIL in a year or so BECAUSE OF my DDD diease(canal stenosis and nuerolforminal etc-moderate)?? I have had a few friends have types of Laminectomy and discectomy (micro too) WITH GREAT RESULTS, BUT THEY DID NOT HAVE DDD diease or i guess STENOSIS.. It appears anyone with DDD diease has STENOSIS..
My symtoms are NOT HORRIBLE at this time but they are constant and depressing type.. For example sitting for a long time kills my butt.. If i kick something i get shooting pains in my leg... Walking is okay but my back feels weak often.. I cant do normal work around the house without my back feeling like crap.. So i guess its a matter of time till i fall apart.. I see a nUERO tomorrow..
THanks for any help!
