So tomorrow will be two weeks since my microdiscectomy with Dr. Binder and I couldn't be happier with how everything has gone. The entire staff has been very helpful and responsive via phone and their email portal. If you need a neurosurgeon, Dr. Binder is AMAZING in my book.
When I made my appointment, I was given a slot about a month later. Since I was in considerable pain, the receptionist had me send my MRI for Dr. Binder to review to see if it was an urgent matter. The next business day, the office called asking me to come in the following morning.
Dr. Binder was very kind and understanding and allowed me to record our appointment because I was alone and afraid I'd miss something. He explained why I was in such terrible pain and gave me two options... I chose the surgical route ASAP to avoid any permanent nerve damage and Dr. Binder said they'd schedule it as a top priority. With insurance and everything it was still another 3 week wait.
Now it's finally done and I can walk! I get to return to yoga very soon! I'm soooo happy!!! If you're in need of a microdisectomy, don't wait until you have permanent damage.... just do it and you'll be able to get back to living life ASAP. Sure, it's scary... but you'll be in good hands.
