In Reply to: Agonizing again!!! another Discectomy..or a Fusion????? posted by Dani on October 12, 2000 at 19:58:34:
Tricky one !! My surgeon told me that a discectomy was only short term relief for younger people like us as the high level of impact and general wear and tear on the vert normaly brings on further back pain after 5 years? I've had the discectomy but I think I would rather of had the fusion instead (even though I'm not in much pain at the moment).
I'm sure someone here will have a better suggestion, but I hope you choose whats right for you.
All my best....Geo
