I have been dealing with back pain for 12 years and the last four have been the toughest. I am "So Over It". I was scheduled for surgery today (Posterior Lumbar Fusion) and my insurance denied it and gave an alternative for a Discectomy..Currently my L4/L5 disc is torn which is the root cause of my pain. I am inquiring to see who can share info on the Discectomy experience. Specifically:
Local or General Anethesia
Inpatient or Outpatient
Any and all information would be greatly appreciated.
Thank for listening.
