I am 19 years old and was relatively physically active before my herniation 6 months ago. I am scheduled to have surgery in two weeks and am kind of afraid, mainly about the things that I will never be able to do again once it is done.
I am having a microdiscectomy on my L5-S1. I am just wondering... will I ever be able to play baseball or tennis again? Those are the sports that are most important to me. Also, if I can do those after my surgery - what will I never be able to do again? Just to get my head around it.
