Discectomy surgery in 2 weeks
Please help..my husband has been in pain for 2 years and after numerous alternative practices he has decided to have discectomy surgery suggested by both OS and NS. We're leaning towards NS as he states he can operate with 1/2" opening as OS wants a 4" scar.
We are told its a bilateral microdiscectomy L3-5 and S1. I have read that smaller incision is easier recovery than larger.
He has this back pain for 1 1/2 yrs but as of last Nov it affected his hips and lower left leg. I would like some testimonials on NS vs OS preferences. His insurance is stating they will not pay so we will be self pay. As of now the OS is almost twice the fee of NS. We want the best so we'll pay what we need. I have two friends and one has used this NS for surgery with great results and the other used this OS with good results so far. We are really torn but I'm leaning towards NS because his ratings are higher than OS.
I would appreciate anyone's testimonial or similar situation. Thanks so much.
