Hi Im a new member, please bear with me! I had an L5 microdiscectomy in 2002 which was a complete success. However I ruptured the disc again at work leading to a second surgery that I had on the 27th june.
Since that surgery I am suffering really strong sciatic pain in my left buttock and left calf, at least as strong as before my operation.
Id like to know whether anyone else has had this post op pain and if there is a chance that it will go away with time.
I guess Im just looking for some reassurance as I thought I would be nearly pain free by now. Im on a bit of a downer, please help. Thank you for reading, Carl.
