I'm 28 years old. It has been almost two years since my back pain started. And after physical therapy, pilates and medicines..I still have a lot of discomfort doing a lot of everyday stuff like walk or sit for a long time and even sleep!
I've a herniated disk on my lower back L5, I'll be having surgery next tuesday.
I would like to know any advise you have for post surgery. How long will recovery take? Is it painful the first week after surgery? Do you gain weight?
Any advise will be really appreciated!!
