I have a herniated disc @ L5/S1 which has impinged the nerve on my right side. I have been offered surgery but been unable to go through with this as I have an intense fear of being put to sleep.
Does anyone know of any surgeons/anaesthetists that will perform the surgery using an epidural anaesthesia in the uk? Preferably in Wales or Liverpool? Is there anyone will do this on the NHS?
I really want to have the surgery, but cant go through with it!
