Hi I'm new here but hoped I could get some advice. In the last year I have had microdiscectomy's on my back l4/l5. I've recently been back to my neurosurgeon who thinks I have another herniated disc at l3/l4, I'm awaiting an MRI. Apparently this disc was bulging on my first MRI scan too. Has anyone else been in the same position as me. I don't know what to expect next after my MRi. This is ruining my life and I have been off work for a year now.
