Hi all, I had reherniated a disc (L5/S1) back in May 2014. Steroid injection didn't work this time. I'm hoping to hear some success stories regarding surgery - specifically the microdisectomy surgery. A lot of what I read on this forum is the pain returns and surgery didn't work so well... anybody have success with this surgery fo the L5/S1? Doc today recommended surgery as shots didn't work. going to try Phys Therpay first but he doubts it will work. I'm frightened to get any surgery for my back, not to mention any surgery at all. So anyone have a good story to relay about this surgery??
