Hi everyone. I had a microdisctomy done August 21st. It was a huge rupture and they did surgery the next day after the MRI. I had lost feeling on the outside of my leg and all my foot except my big toe. Scary! Felt better and was very happy for about three weeks then I started getting horrible muscle spasms. Anyway, another MRI showed the disc collapsed more and a fusion was a suggestion. I said yes but insurance said no. Just found out today that the peer to peer review changed the insurance company's mind. L5S1 fusion is scheduled for next week. I'm 43, female, correct weight and a non smoker so I'll follow the after care directions exactly and hope for a quick recovery. I hope a quick recovery to everyone too!
