I had microdiscectomy L5-S1 last week. My instructions are to stay in bed for the first 2 weeks and only get out of the bed for 10 minutes each hour. Starting the 2nd week I can walk outside and stay up the most of the day only having to lay down awhile after being up for one hour. I can't ride in a car until I go back for my 4 week follow up visit. Does this sound anything like other neurosurgeons post op instructions.
