Im a newby to this, i had lumbar discetomy surgery 15th july on my L5S1 after 8 months of severe full leg pain. Came outa hosp two days later with servere pain in leg with very agresive dull pain on certain movement. I soon learnt that if used my body correctly insted of still trying to compensate for a bad leg the pain would actually subside, learning to push through the pain is scary and hard to do. Ive been out and about trying to walk, the pain is improving every day but im in a worse condition to pre op state, is this it now! I didnt realise the process was potentially a long road to recovery. The one really painful part is the pain in my groine is very unconfortable is this normal? Anyone?
Any views welcomed!
