had it 3 years ago. did not have a choice as while getting out of my hot tub something popped in my back and I hit the ground and could not get up. hollered for wife for 30 minutes and she finually got me into house. made to er room and they put me in hospital for 4 days on morphine for pain till I could get doctor to do surgery. funny thing is never had much back pain but for over a year before surgery both of my legs hurt all the way to the bones.
had the surgery and everything went great. doctor said had some nerve damage in left side as had been like that for some time. right now if I stand for more than 5 minutes my left leg goes numb. other than that no pain at all and can walk forever.
did take about a month for me to walk regular again as had to learn how again.
best of luck and hope everything goes okay
