Doctors diagnosed that i've thoraric herniated disk between T11-T12.

My symptoms are:

item 1- Normal daily life: Very little pain on the right mid-back of my body

item 2- Tolerable pain on the right mid-back of my body if i don't take a rest for a long time and play basketball, volleyball or carry heavy things or walk-run for more than 15 minutes. If i take a rest for a day, everythings goes back to "item 1" conditions.

item 3- Stiff and rigit muscle on the Right Mid-back if i do things in "item-2" , continue doing them even if it hurts me, and don't take a rest and more phsically active. If the spasm happens, now i'm like a disabled person. I can't even walk fast, running, jumping, bending the body is impossible. I very hardly get on my bed, or get up from the bed. Relaxant ınjections helps to increase pain. Normally 2-3 days until recovery, sometimes 1 week. But if that spasm happens, the following 15 days i need to be very careful, every single little dangerous move triggers my pain.

Doctors i've talk to so far advice me surgery. I searched on internet the surgery seems dangerous and risky but however some say it's risk free.

I want to find people who previously had this kind of surgery recently. I want to learn about how they are feeling after surgery, and did they took any risk and are they facing these risks now?

If there is anyone here suits with what i'm looking for, or is there anyone who knows a person who faced with these, please reply this topic or get in touch with me via "setiner@gmail.com" , or private message from this forum.

Also if anyone have any information about my situation please inform me. I need help.

Thanks anyone who can help me.

  • Hi

    Experience quite a similar presentation. I have t10/t11 central herniation and am await surgery. It should be in March or sooner.
    This has been having such a bit impact on my life and job that I just cannot wait to get it sorted.

    I have seen 2 surgeons who strongly recommended I have the surgery.

    I know there is one girl on here who went through it...
