Discectomy....I did it..(4 posts)

Discectomy....I did it..High Gear
Jul 9, 2003 2:42 PM
I had my operation on Monday for a discectomy on the L-4,5. It's strange not having that nagging, debilitating pain anymore. I was living with sciatic pain for the last two years and it was just getting worse. I coulden't even ride anymore. I was really stiff this morning and did a two mile walk. It did help. How many out there have had this procedure and how long was it untill you got back on the bike? I'm thinking two weeks for light riding.

Is it not to equip your sex life with a gun loaded with blank shots?.

that would be a vasectomy. A discectomy is the partial removal of a protruding disc in the spine.
