Hello and good day my name is Manny and I am 36 and am going for my second discogram on May 24 to see exactly what levels the Orthopedic surgeon wants to do. For sure l5 s1 and possibly l3 l4 what I do not understand is that my surgeon wants me to go in on a Friday for one operation then come back for second surgery two weeks later. I was led to believe it was a microdisectomy maybe even a fusion. However I have not found one posting that matches this particular scenario. Sorry so vague on surgical procedure it is just that until the discogram I do not know what surgery it is. If anyone has heard of two separate surgeries please let me know. My Doctor told me it was for billing issues insurance no longer covers long procedures in the or if they can be broke up into smaller surgery times. Also im guessing it is for quicker release time from hospital stays. Well thanks for your time and hope to hear from someone soon.
