Well I've been in and FINALLY had my lumbar microdisc op after weeks and much ado. L5 S1, its my 2nd one, other being L4. Please tell me its normal to feel like I've been hit by a bus. I feel battered and bruised they said it was successful, that they got it all away from the nerve. I'm walking very slowly struggling with picking anything up juswt taking my time though on that one! but cant seem to get comfy in bed, I cant sit for long not that we are supposed to anyway but am I ok lying down in bed? I know I've got to take it real easyh but the 1st time I had the op I felt great so relieved, a bit sore but nothing to how this feels!! it is normal???
