I am sched for thoracic discetomy on 7/7/10 and would love to hear from anyone who had this done...I see the surgeon tom and have a list of questions for him but would like to hear from someone who actually had this done.I have read lots from everyone who had the lumbar area done & I am wondering if it will be at all like what they are going through.I also have bulging disc L5-S1 that really seems to be getting worse ..having a hard time getting up from sitting esp. from the tiolet.Lots of pain radiating down my leg & pain in heal of foot.I am hopping being off with t spine surg will help the lower back settle down ..or is that just wishing too much??
Would like to know if you had this surg
How long & hard the recovery was?
How much of your pain did it take away?
What were your restrictions after surgery?
