scared shitless…I got the pre-op tests today, immediately after my appointment with the Neurosurgeon. If everything comes back ok I will be under the knife on 7/11/2011.
It will be a laminectopy in discs L4 I believe, and microdiscectomy in L5-s1 and L4.
There are many people on you tube who comment about their positive results. This is a relief since most blogs for back pain suffering are horror stories…and make it seem like there is no relief to be had.
My MRI showed 2 herniations. One that is responsible for the numbness and weekness in my right foot, and the other for the horrendous pain on my left side.
