So im a newbie to back troubles. Having a microdisectomy on L5S1 tomorrow afternoon at 3. Supposed be home tomorrow evening afterwards. To say im terrified is an understatement. I will turn 35 on the 21st and only have high blood pressure no other health problems. Had a hernia repair done last year so I kinda know partly what to expect but it does not help. I know it will be worth it if it gets rid of this horrible leg-foot nerve pain and numbness and I can get of these 10mg percocets every 4 hours i been on for the past 2 months and back to my wife and 3 children. Pretty normal to be so scared or have that "something bad is going to happen" feeling before surgery or should I listen to that and cancel?
