Re: Microdiskectomy

Valerie1965 - Call your dr! I had the same procedure done on the same disc. In my opinion, only your doc could offer the information or test(s) needed to see what's going on. In my case, the disc began bulging out the non-surgical side - but that was about a year after the surgery. Good luck!

Re: Microdiskectomy

Good luck, Valerie1965! I wish I checked the boards earlier today. Remember - If you are unsatisfied with your doc's opinion or reading of the MRI, etc and you are still in pain, get another opinion! No one deserves to live in pain. My experience with many of these doctors is that if the answer isn't clear, they make you feel like the pain is in your head and not real. I hope all goes well, my thoughts and prayers are with you.....
