has anyone had a microdiscetomy and is still is serving. I have a bulge in l4/5 in my back, it dates back since summer last year and has relapsed a number of times since. So i guess this operation is the only option for me. Anyone else stories would be great to hear, how they got on. On leave now so doc does not know about this bout or any sincesick leave last year. I have gone on two exercises since coming back of sick leave but struggled.
