: does anyone have any experience with this procedure.
: how much pain is involved post op.
: i've had a bulging disc ,L4-L5 going on three years.
: currently take supedol for pain. which helps,but would a discectomy
: make me pain free?
Will, I just had my third discotomy on the L4-5 on Feb 4th of this year. It was the first microdiscotomy and compared to the others it was a breeze. I was sore at the incision site and had spasms in my left hip, but I just called the nurse everytime I needed something. On the pain free question I really don't know because if you have nerve damage like I do the discotomy will give you a lot of relief but not get rid of all the pain. Good luck, Keith
