after having 2 prolapsed discs (L3 and L4) for 2 and a half years, and after seeing no improvements through many other possible rememdies (physio, acupuncture, epidurals, rest, massage, pilates etc.) , I've been told I need back surgery. I'm only 17 and so in a way, am quite relieved about having teh surgery as this injury has had a huge impact on my life. However, i've never had surgery before and so am quite nervous/scared about 1)the actual act of the surgical procedure and 2) the recovery process after surgery.
If anyone has had this or similar surgery I would really appreciate any words of advice or comfort!
Thank you, Rachael
