I have been dealing with low back and leg pain for several months and the severe leg pain started in early Sep. I saw a spinal surgeon yesterday and he recommends a left L5/S1 discectomy. I have tried just about everything else. I got one epidural injection a couple of weeks ago which frankly did little to nothing. I have a second scheduled on Friday. I am nervous that the procedure won't work or will make me worse. Any thoughts?
