Hi I have a l5 s1 herniated disc, I have my op this sat and I am making myself I'll with worry can't eat can't sleep... Hearts palpitating! I am so terrified, i keep reading horror stories of spinal fluid leakage, scar tissue, terrible pain! I feel like I'll pull out... I've had a really bad back for two years now, feels like something caught in the base of my spine \ buttock only 6 weeks as go it ended up in hospital for 9 days I could not stand up or walk at all! I'm on oramorph and the pain isn't as bad in the leg I can walk for couple mins now! I'm terrified I'm doing the wrong thing and wonder if I should just suffer as I'm worried it'll be worse after or something bad will happen! I'm a student nurse and I've had to take a year out of uni... Just so fed up right now.
Hope I get promising feedback
