I've gone into a discectomy on 14, November 2008. - 8 months ago.
The recovery from surgery has been very hard.
4 weeks after my surgery, I came up with a new kind of pain. I could barely turn myself and I faced lots of stiffness in my spine, especially in the mourning.
But on March 2008, fortunately all that pain and stiffness have completely gone
Nevertheless, by the same time, I started to feel sciatica in my left leg, where I had never felt before (My original problems were on the right leg).
My surgeon asked for an MRI by that time and it showed too much scar tissue. My surgeon told that scar tissue is normal right after a surgery, but by this time it should not exist in so much quantity.
He told me to go to the swimming pool and he told me that this issue would solve itself naturally. He couldn't tell me how much time it would take... It can be 1 month.. 2 months.. 6 months... It's not predictable. But it solves itself.
Well.. I have been reading about scar tissue problems... And I'm getting scared. It seems that scar tissue has no cure at all. If it is true... Then.. Is my surgeon telling me the truth? Will I get better with time?
