It has been awhile since I have been on. I had a L5S1 Microdiscectomy March 12th. It took about 2 months to finally start feeling better. My spirits were so much better until last mondat I woke up in pain again. I have the numbness in my leg, the pain in my left buttock down to the back of my thigh, behind my knee all the way down to my ankle. I can only walk or stand for about 10 mins. I can't get comfortable sitting or laying down. My doctor wants to have another MRI. I was wondering if anyone has had this happen and got better. Is this just a flair up or something worse?
