Finally got operated for my slip disc on 26th Sept @ Lilavati Hospital, Mumbai. The surgery was conducted by Dr Ramani and it was a longish 3hrs+ types!
I was very nervous about the general anesthesia bit....but I did not even realize when I went Blank whilst discussing Telecom with the anaesthetist! the next was a wake up call " Mr. Rahi, ur surgery is over" :)
well, 6 days over, and i am feeling much better.... the pains are almost gone but the weakness remains.... as per the dioc the rehabilitation time is 4 to 8 weeks for the nerves and muscles to get back to shaape.
Have become an expert of back related issues now! Free consultation anytime for anyone!
Will try an leave for jaipur on 6th - if the doc allows. return to work, as of now appears to be post Diwali!
Got to learn some interesting aspect of the medicine profession in Mumbai pre surgery....... scary to say the least!

Have been going thru this back issue for past one month..... a slipped disc which has caused major disruption for me. Been on complete bed rest and as per doctors I have to conitnue like this fpr next 2 weeks.... and the latest from my doc in Mumbai is that surgery seems to be the only way out. Now the decision is, to be or not to be. All in the family running around for 2nd/3rd/4th/nth opinions before I take a final call!
