Hi everyone, I am an 18 year old High School student suffering from a herniated disc. I have an upcoming Microdisectomy on March 30th and I am not sure what to expect. As being a soon to be college student, I had big plans for this upcoming summer with friends before we part away for college ie. Cedar Point, Boat rides, tubing, trail riding and more. My doctor is confident that in 8 weeks I will be back to working out and doing daily activities. My doctor claims he has similar patients like me go straight back to football and other collision sports. I am unsure what to expect, your feedback would be appreciated.
