Hello CM friends. My mom recently had one of her kidneys removed and is healing well. However, she has a bulging disc in her spinal column that is causing her tremendous pain in her leg. She had a series of back injections, but they have not helped. She does not want to go through back surgery after having such a rough time recuperating from kidney surgery. I heard that laser surgery could be an option although she hasn't spoken to her doctor about it yet. Please pray for her healing, whether it be through another surgery or a miracle for her....and that she will be open to having surgery if it is recommended. Thanks in advance for your prayers.
kayla be careful in investigating all the surgeries. laser surgery is really just a spinal decompression(disc surgery without the fusion of the bones).It involves actual cutting of the disc.Sometimes its better to just fuse the bones --esp if its just on one level.-I am sure that the surgeons(get about 3 opinions at least) will come up with the proper type for your mom. Prayers for her.
