Hi there. I am new to this site. I had two back surgeries for disk herniation in 2010. After my first was born I had a herniated disk at L5-S1. I have been doing well since last summer we when started hormone therapy. I was wondering if anyone has encountered the same situation as me. Also, with my first, I had a section. My doctor told me instead of doing another awake section, they would put me to sleep. If anyone can elaborate on this, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!!
