I'm 63, and have had four microdiscectomies in the past. Bothering me again, not real bad during the day but rolling over in bed and getting up in the morning is about an 8 on the 1-10 pain scale. Had an MRI, and not surprisingly there is not much holding the two vertebrae part. The neurologist says a fusion may be in the offing. I'm going to get a second opinion tomorrow.
I really don't want one, but it seems inevitable.
What is your experience? How long was discovery?
