Hi everyone I am new to the group and I go in 04/24/14 for my second back surgery. The first one was in 2012 and not even 6 months later I was rear ended and lost feeling from the waist down. I am only 31 and also have spinal degenerative disease plus scoliosis. I am very scared of what to expect from this surgery since the first one was a lumbar microdiscectomy of L4&L5. I healed very well and was able to live again. Since my accident I have more damage done and almost no feeling in my left leg except when the shooting pain flies down it. I can not sit longer then 10-15 mins with out horrible pain and end up in tears. Even laying down can be a challenge (like it is right now to much pain). I was hoping for some advice on how to handle the surgery and what I might feel like.
Thanks for reading I hope to hear back some advice :-)
