Microdiscectomy & Riding
So after 2 years of intermittent sciatica d/t a herniated disc, the pain has become virtually constant. This has, naturally, been a problem for doing pretty much everything from work to riding to even watching a movie. So, the plan is to have a microdiscectomy done. I have a well-reviewed neurosurgeon who works at one of the top orthopedic hospitals in the US, and some idea of the recovery, but looking for any stories from riders who've had the same or similar procedures and what kind of recovery time and what sort of prep (aside from strengthening the core as much as possible) to do.
