Procedure: Spinal Discectomy
What was your initial medical issue?
I went to the ER with severe leg pain.
What did this issue prevent you doing?
I was unable to perform my duties at work. I could not bend over to put on my socks or tie my shoes.
What made you decide to do something about your problem?
I was pretty much immobile. The day I went to the ER I could not put on my work boots because I was in so much pain.
Why did you choose Dr. Sinicropi?
I was referred by a St Francis Emergency Room doctor.
What treatment/procedure did you have done?
I had a discectomy.
How did you feel after treatment?
I was sore for a few days but the pain was pretty much gone. I could stand up straight. I could walk better than I had in a long time the same day after surgery.
What advice would you give other patients in a similar situation to you?
Don’t wait for your pain to get so bad you can’t stand or sit comfortably.
