I was shocked to learn I have four disc issues last week. The discs are hitting my S1 nerve; my pain and the numbness is outrageous.
I have an appointment to meet with a surgeon this week to review my options. I've ruled out any consideration of injections due to the severity of my spinal condition. It seems to me that a discectomy would be appropriate. However, I'm anxious to learn of add'l treatment options.
I hope my condition will resonate with someone in this forum who can share their surgical and recovery experience.
Thank you in advance for your help!
