I saw my OS today. He offered two routes to get relief from my Sciatic pain. I either could do spinal epidurals or have the MicroDisketomy. I have already done the epidurals in the past. They didn't work all that great. So I opted for the surgery. I am scheduled for Monday! I can't believe how fast this is happening. So I did my PAT today and then stopped by my PCP's office and got an EKG done. Also I spoke to my PCP and he is happy with the doctor that I have. So that makes me feel better as well.
The ONLY way to fix my back with no guarantees is a fusion. I just want the sciatic pain to go. I can leave with a backache. I am used to those.
