Microdiscectomy 1 1/2 weeks ago already herniated again!
Well I just can't believe it. I just had my microdiscectomy and was good for 6 days and then all of the sudden leg pain started up again and then horrible back pain the next night I almost went to the ER the pain was so bad. My doctor ordered MRI with contrast and sure enough the disc is herniated again.
I go in to see my surgeon Monday to discuss my treatment options. He did already mention fusion if it herniated again so that's what we will be discussing I'm sure. I'm not sure what kind of fusion but I know he does the new minimally invasive procedures and I hope I can just get that done and over with and get my life back.
