Hi All I just had a microdiscectomy on my L5S1 at sunnybrook hospital. After the surgery I was delighted as I had no usual buttock/leg pain as I had before the surgery. After a few complications due to medication etc I was went home a day later. At that point the only pain I had was from the Surgery. The next am as I was getting out of bed I
collasped from shooting pain from my buttock all the way down my left leg with severe cramping and numbness. Basicly tthe same pain/problem I just had surgery for only now it was 10 times worse. All my Surgeon said was that there is a 5% chance of "reherniation" and that I was to sit on the couch all weekend and watch tv. Needless to say I am not impressed. Has anyone else had this happen and what did you do.
