Hi, I slipped a disc in sept 13. I was told it was so bad I needed a plif to correct it. On the day of surgery the quack came to me and said he had changed his mind due to my young age (26) he thought it best to do a discectomy and laminectomy instead. At first I was ok not 100% but bearing the pain. I went back to work in August 14. (I am a British gas engineer) after about 5 weeks at work I slipped it again (so I thought) been for another Mri and the so called doc says it's not a slipped disc its that my disc is dehydrated and that I need the plif he said I should of had a year ago. My question is, what is a dehydrated disc? And would it come on suddenly since my op in April or has it always been dehydrated. Daft q but do I just need to drink more water???? When I google it it takes me to degenerative disc disease so I'm confused. This pain has consumed my life for over a year I am about to be dismissed on capability grounds but all I want is to be pain free. Sorry for long message I know being pain free is all we want and I know 14months is a drop in the ocean to most people's pain but I just wanted to ask them two questions. Thanks stuart
