I am disheartened by the increasing pain. Every night I hope/pray that I will get up and feel better, but this is not the case. I know that some people will say that it is too early to tell (had microdiscectomy 2 weeks ago), but the increasing pain is making me depressed. When the pain first started, it was controllable with four ibuprofens. Now I am popping three Lortabs a day and it is not touching the pain. I am afraid to increase the dosage because 4 pills is the max and I hate the side effects.
Have someone out there had increase in pain after microdiscectomy and recovered?
