I had a Discectomy for a herniated disk in my lower back on 6/2/09. Before the surgery I had terrible sciatica down my left leg, pain, numbness the whole works. I thought the surgery was a complete success until I woke a couple of days ago to the same miserable pain as before the surgery. I'm afraid it might a re-herniation or a different herniated disk. I read on another site that the pain might be due to nerve damage. Has anybody had a similar experience? I have an appointment with my doctor late next week. Also my neighbor suggested an inversion table, but I'm afraid it might do more harm than good being that it's only been about eight weeks since my surgery. Thanks for listening I would appreciate any feedback, thanks.
