Hello! Im supposed to have a micro-d on May 9 L5-S1 but i dont think im ready. I am so scared, really scared. I'm not sure if i made the right decision. I was bed ridden for almost 2 months last january which made me decide on having the surgery. But then beginning of march i started feeling a little better. From eating and doing everything in my bed, i saw myself eating in our dining room with a bit of discomfort. And now, with medications i am able to go out and have brunch with friends. I know i have a big herniation and my nerve is pinched until now but i am more afraid of the risks of the surgeries. It's been a year since i herniated the disc. Does anyone here happen to have the surgery scheduled then backed out? And eventually in time the nerve heals itself!?
Microdiscectomy scheduled on May, 2013. With L5/S1 disc herniation. Scared but im going for it!
