im very new to this site, just found it by chance and hopefully i can get a few answers and be less stressed with my recovery!
its only been a week since i had a L5S1 microdiscectomy and im quite stressed. before the surgery i had major right leg pain right down to my foot and ankle and was in intense pain! in my consult with my NS he told me that he was 100% confident of relieving me of the leg pain straight after surgery.
since the surgery i have had no relief of the leg pain and its basically the same intensity and just as frequent. i did speak to my NS whilst i was in hospital and told him of the pain and then he assured me it would eventually dissapear. im just wondering when?? 1 week, 2 weeks a year?
just a little worried as my NS assured me the pain would be gone straight after surgery!
has anyone had any similar situations they can share, anything to put my mind at ease!
