had Discectomy on L-4 L-5 for recurrent disc surgery was sucessful leg and back pain went away completly but 5 months after surgery sudden severe backache and attack of sciatica
going on a month now could scar tissues cause this pain



  • and welcome!
    Well if it's been a month maybe you've talked to the doc if not...

    Please call your doc he/she may want to get a MRI. Don't panic it may have reherniated, another level could be troublesome and so on.

    hopefully you don't have scar tissue & it can mimic other things so it's a little scary I know because I have it.

    Just pls get checked out, any numbness, tingling, weakness etc ?

    Good luck
