I am a 34yr old female who had surgery 4weeks ago today. The surgeon first said he would take the disc but when he started surgery he decided against it. I was in extreme pain the first two days. After the first initial days I started feeling better no pain medicines or nothing. At two weeks the surgeon said I could drive. First day back driving rt leg pain started back. I'm back at work and the sciatic pain is back in full force. I have a sit down job. Has anyone had this happen to them.
