3 weeks out from L5/S1 Microdiskectomy



  • what surgery are you having, bulging discs so im presuming its microdisectomy???
    we all get anxious at the prospect of surgery its totally natural, i had my second spine surgery 10 weeks ago and have to say i was very nervous but I had one of top surgeons in Ireland and was confident with my choice as im sure you are by the sounds of it.
    Dont worry too much about the surgery, try to focus on being well again and being able to do all the things your current back pain is stopping you from doing. focus on the end result. I wish you well and hope you get back to us here and let us know how it all goes.
  • Well............followed up with MD on Jult 11th. He was very snippy with me because I wasn't "healed". Ordered 6 weks of Physical Therapy,, and then cut my pain meds in half!

    The worst part is he completely discontinued my Duragesic patch, which I have been on since October 2008. I was on 50mcg. I had my last patch taken off on Friday morning. I am sick, sweting and chiling, my clothes are soaked and I asm freezing. Pain unbelievable!!!

    No response from my Workmans Comp nurse, and I have to go to Therapy on Monday. I don't think I can while my body is withdrawing from the Duragesic and my pain.

    I'm very depressed!
