I just had a microdiscectomy on the 21st of November. I have/had 2 herniated disk at L4/5 and L5/S1. The Microdiscectomy removed the bulging at L5/S1. I had asked that both be removed just to make sure and I was told that they would do both but apparently not. Anyways I have been in constant pain since then with no end in sight and this is the first place I found that had people that are going through or have gone through the same thing as I am. I am just really glad I found this place. >:D<
I have a question about blood around the nerve. I just got off the phone with my Dr.'s office. I had asked them why I still hurt and I was told that there is blood around my nerve from the surgery and that is causing the pain. Has anyone ever heard of this? I was told this by, I think the office secretary, and not sure if its true or accurate. Any info would be awesome.
