Hello everyone, I am 37yrs old and I had a microdiscectomy on my l4/l5 back in February. I herniated the same disc about two months later. I have been debating about having my second. I have seen three doctors and the opinions range from laminectomy to microdiscectomy to wait as long as you can. I was very active before this. I have also had lower back issues since college. I am currently seeing a chiropractor, pt therapist and I have a pilates instructor.
Any experiences / advice for dealing with the pain and/or second surgeries would be appreciated.
