Recovery from microdiscectomy - sore elsewhere?

Had an L5/L4 microsdiscectomy and am about 6-7 months post op. I am finding I am tender and sore when I push on other vertebrae's in the middle of my back. Is this normal? Is this from not bending enough in the recovery process? I am concerned I am not doing enough bending at this point in the recovery process. I tend to still keep a very straight back and don't bend at all. I know I should keep good posture through out my life but don't want to do some long term damage by not doing enough. Thoughts?


  • You may have soreness in areas from not moving around normally. It tends to make other parts of the body take more pressure than normal to compensate.

    You may want to make a call to your doctor just to be sure.

    Good luck and I wish you well in your recovery process.
