Hi! My name is Julie and I am 52 years old. I have DDD and in the past year, have had 2 micros on my L5-S1 disc. I recently had a f/u MRI because I just felt like something was not right. The images show that the same disc has re-herniated again and the neurosurgeon says he thinks we need to go ahead and fuse it. The procedure is a R TLIF with 360 Luna. I came home and read about this surgery and just freaked. It was not a day surgery. I am looking to hear other stories out there. My biggest problem is the pain down my right leg to the bottom of my foot. I have a hour commute to work each day and then sit at a computer for 8 hours. I am frustrated, scared, angry, depressed...just everything. Hoping to hear from others about where they have been and if they have this surgery. What can I expect? I want honest feedback. Please share!!
