I've been a member for a little while now, I'm from the UK and I live in South Devon, just reading the posts on here has helped me gain some sort of understanding of what to expect.
The time is now drawing near and I'm growing a little nervous to say the least.
I go into hospital on Thursday morning at 07.15 for a 'micro discectomy L5/L4' and I'm hopeful of being let home late on Friday afternoon. I've been laid up for nearly a year now, going from an active lifestyle to barely being able to walk, and having to take buckets full of meds, so I am really looking forward to being able to walk pain free and upright again, and also not having to take medication. I can't wait to have it done, but I'm also dreading it at the same time, if that makes sense.
A closed mouth gathers no foot.
