I had a microdiscectomy/laminectomy(less invasive than a fusion-no hardware) of a herniated disc. It reherniated and It has basically made symptoms worse. I realized no one’s gonna fix me but myself. I listened to sarnos first book and felt better right away , but I have not had a pain free day in months. (Which is not 100% convincing me that it’s TMS) My biggest take away so far from his teachings is that the fear of physical activity is gone as I push myself more and more but still experience pain. Just wondering if there is anyone else that had surgery that didn’t help and is now turning to dr sarnos way.
