I still feel pain, pressure, and the spastic rap-rapping on my familiar pain superhighways even though it's way less intense than before surgery. I was told that it should take 12 weeks to fully recover from the surgery trauma. It has been 6 and I'm much better but still very aware of radiculohell. Anyone know how long it might take for previously pinched nerves to calm down? Can it take years or more? (a positive answer would make me feel more assured that I'm gonna keep getting better) I know it's a vague question, but maybe someone had a successful surgery that took a long time to fully work after the initial major pain went away? Thanks for reading.
