I am embarrassed to say this, I had a discectomy L4/L5 on Feb 1st of this year. It was workers comp, so nothing has been done quickly. It took them two months to approve my physical therapy after surgery. Anyway, basically, I have been released from the surgeon as of last week, I have 3 degenerative discs L4/L5/Ls1? I was doing good until I had to do the FCE test. I was mortified. Left crying, that was four weeks ago. My surgeon sent me for another MRI. He does not suggest disc replacement at this time, (honestly, he has been very fair and upfront with me) even though he is the workers comp surgeon. He wants to go to a Pain and Spine clinic and talk about injections and pain management. The appointment is Monday. In the last week, I have wet myself at least three times. My lower back hurts so bad, I cant stand it. Is the wetting yourself normal, or has it happened to anyone else?
