    percutaneous discectomy/has anyone had it done or know about it

    i don't think it has worked for me. its been four months. debating pt. did it work for you. if not, what were the other options. besides fusion and adr. if my disc is leaking what else could i do. i wouldn't think pt would be helpful for tears. thanks, jason

    pt usually isn't helpful for tears.

    has your ortho mentioned idet? it's controversial and not covered by insurance, but i did it last summer. haven't felt the tear since, and got to keep my disc (at least for now - everything's a wait-and-see with your back).

    whatever you do, just make sure you trust your dr and that you make the choices that are best for you, not anyone else.

    hope this helped...take care of yourself!
