Long time reader, but first time posting. I am a 25 year old fairly healthy female with the exception of chronic back issues for about 2.5,years. I had a lami L4-L5 in Nov 2017 after a year of conservative treatment for buldging disk, and moderate right lateral recess stenosis. I had a very hard recovery after the first surgery but unfortunately re-herniated in April 2018 and failed conservative treatment and will be having a fairly urgent Micro d at the same level on Thursday 3/7 due to significant loss of motor strength in my right leg Over the past week or so. I am very nervous about this surgery as my surgeon (seeing a different surgeon than who did my previous surgery) told me it’s a similar recovery, but trying to remain optimistic that this will finally leave me relatively (or completely) pain free. Hoping to find a buddy who is having a micro D this month as well or to hear experiences/tips from anyone else who has had similar surgeries!
Thanks y’all and hope everyone is having a nice, Pain free weekend,
