Just wondering if there have been any success stories with micro surgery. Im having L5-S1 done first week in April after 6 months of leg and butt pain. I am not in excruciating pain, but have had this dull leg and butt pain for over 6 months now. And I cant sit for more than 30 minutes without it starting up , so no quality of life here. I am confused bc I don't want to end up worse, but cant take this anymore so went ahead and scheduled surgery. Ive read so many horror stories and am terrified of ending up with new pains, especially when my pain is bearable. I know I am the only one who can decide, but it would help if I saw some success stories and stopped reading so many people who actually got worse. Anyone out there? And by the way, I pray for people with chronic pain all the time because I know how it affects your whole life.
Thanks so much, Maria
