Hi, i'm near 10 weeks post microdiscectomy now on L4 and L5 and have just returned to work.I'm swimming around 2000yards 3 times a week and walking.Everything seems fine so far with no leg pain as such just a light tingling sensation in the calfs sometimes .During the week at work someone bumped into me and i could feel like a bruised tender sensation in the lower back where the op was carried out.I was wondering how long does it take for this area where the tissue was cut to fully heal?
