I suffer from late post-op scar tissue, according to my neurosurgeon I sould undergo an operation
to free the S1 nerve root. To prevent fibrosis for reappearing (a certainty in these surgeries)
he would be using a DuraGen membrane. I have found that that material greatly reduces to apperance of fibrosis
in lumbar sugeries, therfore there is a chance that the operation might be successful.
So, I have this dilemma: I don't want another (that would be my second) back operation, but on the other hand I'm 46 y.o., I still
have some 40 years ahead of life expectancy and I want a high quality life all the way, be able to do
simple things I no longer can. And being 46 the time for undergoing surgery is now, the more I wait the
harder for my "ageing" body to heal. In summary, I don't want a surgery but time is running out for not
regretting not doing it.
Everybody's advice is welcome.
