I went ahead and had the microdisectomy on Feb. 9th, I have to be honest with myself and say I shouldn't have had the surgery. I was feeling pretty good. I had no pain down my leg the only thing I had was intense pressure in my buttucks and at the spine area. I saw the surgeon and he did some test on my leg and foot and I did have some weakness, which he said could be permanate if I didn't get the pressure off the nerve. I trust my surgeon so I went ahead and had the surgery on Feb. 9th. So far I have been feeling ok and I have been very careful, no bending ,twisting... Two days ago I started having shooting pains on my shin. I'm just wondering if anyone who has had Microdisectomy had similar pain and did it go away. I am so scared that I have reherniated already. The pain comes and goes almost like a spasm. If I take muscle relaxer and hydrocodone I feel fine. I don't want another surgery, and I'm just at a loss. I have a appointment with my surgeon next week. Is it normal to have pains after surgery and still not reherniate? Thanks for any help.
