I'm 24 and had a Microdisectomy in Jan after years of a bad back and numbness in my left leg/foot.
The opp went well, thou the feeling in my bum, thigh and foot has not returned. I have been discharged from the osteopath and physio - I did not had much pain since, but recently have gone back to how it was.
I get the bad achey pain in my lower back and also the leg pain is gradually coming back.
I suffer from depression too so find it difficult to ask q's and understand stuff. When I had my opp, I didn't know much about anything really!
I have read that sometimes the disc can re-herniate, and a fusion is needed. I don't really want more surgery but can't continue with pain as it afects my job and my depression.
Should I go back to my doc or just see how I go? It seems to me that everyone is different with this sort of thing.
Any advice would be great..........
