Hi folks, I'm new to the site but by no means new to lower back problems. To make it short, I had a microdiscectomy in Nov 2003 for a herniated L4-L5 disc. The surgeon removed a piece of the facet bone but left the disc intact. The sciatica pain returned 6 months later and gradually worsened. Alternative treatments did not work. On top of that I developed nerve damage symptoms three weeks later, in my left leg and both feet. Doctors would not link it to the surgery but I have my suspicions.
Anyway It's back to surgery to try to fix it again. I would like to hear from anyone who has experience with the Edited or the Edited.
