this is so much harder than i expected it to be. i've had 2 discectomies since december as well, and thought i knew pain, but this, this is almost an art form with how much pain i'm getting down my legs. and parts of my skin feel like they are on fire always. the wind from a fan hurts it! i just am looking for others that have experienced this so i know i'm not alone, and so i know what to expect in the coming weeks/ months. thanks.
