Hi all,

Just introducing myself. My condition started mid-March, and I finally saw a neurosurgeon this week. I have stenosis at L3, and a "very large" (direct quote!) herniation at L5. Surgery already scheduled. Will be having the myelogram & CT combo in a few weeks for pre-op. 

Anyways, I stumbled across this site while in search of information about back pain and sciatica and I'm very glad I found it. It's nice to be see that there are others out there with these issues because for quite some time I felt very alone and no one understood the crippling pain I was experiencing. 

Thanks for for having me, looking forward to talking with you all!
