You are handling matters very well indeed - gave the lie back to that surgeon...he won't be so judgemental nxt time round with other patients!
Take care - go well

That comes across as dismissive but it may really just be over confidence. One must have a lot of confidence to do that type of surgery.

That sounds like an "old-boys" club! But at least they didn't conspire to bury the mistake.

They will do a good job second time in. You're going to feel much better some time after the surgery. Medicine certainly does well in some cases. Now I just wish they knew how to avoid all this abnormal deterioration in the first place.

Anita, are the disks a location of an old injury? Infection and even our own immune system like to target those weak spots.

I had a dicectomy as well as laminectomy. Lots of arthritis so my incision was large. The dicectomy was due to a fall in August. Honestly, I don’t think my insurance would have been as quick to approve me without the injury from the fall. My arthritis was slowly taking away my mobility but the fall kinda sealed the deal. My current hematoma is slowly expanding so sitting, standing are done only for a few minutes at a time. I lay from side to side until the sciatic pain overwhelms me. Sorry to complain.....this has been excruciating. I’m looking forward to the relief I hope surgery will bring. I’m a mom and it’s been very difficult. Anyway....I have my faith so I rely on that most definitely!!

I'm on the road way behind you but I too can not lie on my back. In my case I'm confident an infection is creating inflammation that is eating up my spine. The worst places are were there has been injury and strain, which opens the door to chronic infection. I anticipate surgery one day too.

Stay strong!
