Hi, I am new to this forum...thanks for the valuable information. I had a 2 level microdiscectomy about 3 weeks ago, and unfortunately my leg and back pain are worse than ever. I have degenerative disc disease. My doctor was trying the least invasive surgery he could do first, but we were initially leaning towards fusion due to instability. Does anyone know how long you have to wait between a miscrodiscectomy and a fusion? Just curious if anyone has gone through it. Thanks!!!
