I know I am not far out from surgery but I am concerned. I had my surgery on March 11, 2011.
I was good at 6 weeks some pain in right leg but not severe. Starting at 8 weeks the pain began to become intense. I called my Neuro's office and I explained that I cannot make it through the day without 3200 mg of motrin and my Oxy which is now gone. I try to not do much but I want to do some walking as well because it is not good to sit all day.
Symptoms - Right hip and leg pain (similar to sciatica but not the same) it is more intense than before surgery. I feel like the swelling in my back is rubbing on something. Sever muscle atrophy of lower back muscles, once I lay down I have no strength to get up. My right hamstring is so tight it hurts as well when walking.
I hope this does not sound whiney but I did have an MRI last week I am waiting for the results but my appt is next week and they will not give me the results via phone.
Any one else go through similar problems
