last year I had l3-s1 fused. I have been having trouble with sciatica pain, and numbness from waist down along with horrible back pain. Had a MRI 3 weeks ago along with an EMG. MRI showed I have 2 severely herniated discs with moderate stenosis and the EMG showed nerve damage. Scheduled to have surgery on May 10th. Can anyone tell me what to expect? I'm only 42 and I'm freaking out a bit. Thanks!
