Thoracic Disc surgery T6 T7
Hi, I'm new to this forum. I am scheduled for surgery this coming Tuesday November 6th to remove a larged herniated Thoracic Disc at T6 - T7, I have had mild to moderate pain at this level, weakness in my legs that comes and goes and bladder dysfuction that comes and goes. I am nervous about surgery and wondering if I can find someone who has been through this? I am 39, healthy and active. My Surgeon is EDITED
He is going in from my side, I am espcially concerned about the pain from collapsing of my lung and chest tube post op.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
