Hi I’m new to the group I have been I have a herniated disc L5 S1 sitting on the root of the nerve. I have been in pain since October. I had an injection and it didn’t help so now they want to do surgery. They would shave the part of the disc that is hitting the nerve. I’m scared to death. I am a runner and very active. Has anyone had this done?? How are you feeling now?? They said recovery would be 4 to 6 weeks. How did you feel after the surgery?? Sorry for all the questions I am just so scared. Thank you in advance for your help.
