Hey everyone. I am a 22 year old female 9 days out of my second microdiscectomy. I had my first may 17 of 2011 and my second on november 9th '11. I was doing amazingly until yesterday when I sat down and had a pain shoot down my right leg. Instantly terrifying. I've been having soreness around my incision and in my leg today. Hoping i just over did things yesterday. If this surgery doesnt work its a fusion for me and at 22 that just isnt a very good next option. I have a 13 month old son and I am missing out on so much. I feel horrible. My first post up check up is tomorrow. Hopefully the dr. can reasure my fears, but at this point I'm feeing pretty negative about things. :( We are struggling financially now and its any ones guess if we will even be able to come up with rent for next month...Im under alot of stress and just want things to fast forward to being ok. :)
