After 2 years of trying different methods to relieve my lower back pain i have finally been given the go ahead for surgery. I have torn and herniated discs at L4-L5 and L5-S1. A discography was the last thing i had done to confirm it was both discs giving me the pain, I would never have that procedure done again even if i was paid. The surgeon hit my nerve with the needle 4 times at L4-L5 and 5 times at L5-S1!!!
It's a different surgeon offering to do my fusion and has given me the option to have it done it 1 or 2 stages. Go for the L4-L5 first then wait a little while before doing L5-S1 or go for both in the same day.
What would you do if given the choice?
Without struggle there is no progress
