Hi everyone. I've had back surgery and had disc L4/5 disc excision on the 5th of october last year and for the first time in 6 months i was totally pain free. Last month i had a fall and undone all the surgery to the point where they were talking more surgery but at the same time the Dr also had to consider having broken bones in my back. Now i hate needles with a passion (but can handle tattoo's) my back surgeon was not at all wanting to rush into another operation as i'm only 22yrs old. So the suggestion was to have a caudal surgery (needle in my spinal cord) to see if i would have any relief from it. Surgery day was today and my fiance was panicing about it thinking what could go wrong and if i was totally asleep during the little operation. I went in at 1pm and was out by 2pm. Im over the moon with the starting results (will take up to a week to have a full effect). Any one who is having disc problems and there Dr or surgeon has suggested it i would be trying it and seeing how it goes. I have been told i will be in a lot of pain over night with it but my fingers are crossed i'm not in any pain at all at the moment. If everything goes to plan i'm hoping to be working by the end of the year again and i'm so pleased i tried this before rushing into surgery again.
