Hi everyone, I am now 4 weeks post op from a 2 level discectomy/decompression. My surgical pain (incision) is better now, but that is pretty much all that is better. Still have the same pain as before surgery (back actually feels worse) numbness in calf and foot, coccyx/buttocks/hip pain.
I have been taking it pretty easy, walking as much as pain will allow.
My doctor is sending me to have an xray. My question is whether this will really tell him very much? Xrays don't show discs or nerves so not really sure what he will be able to tell from a simple xray.Has anyone had an xray after surgery and really learned very much about the success of the surgery from it?
Thanks,hope everyone has a nice pain reduced relaxing evening.
