Hi, I've been put on the waiting list for a microdiscectomy. I'm waiting to get a 2nd mri done though as the pain has now moved into my left leg as well as my right. Tried 3 different physios, the last one was bupa. She finally conceded that I wasn't improving so surgery was probably the next option. The meeting with the consultant was very brief so although I know the surgery is probably for the best, I feel a bit left in the dark. I have young kids (3 year old twins) and work as a mechanic so I need to get back to full health as quick as I can. Any advice, comments or shared similar experiances would really be appreciated. Thanks
