recovery from micro discetomy
hi,had my op for a bulging L4 disc last tuesday...day after felt fine,no pain in any part of my leg,walking ok...now today got some pains again in my left foot and shin..not sure if this is normal,possibly the nerves recovering from the op...left the hospital not being given any info on what exercises i should be doing,should i be walking loads or taking it easy..also still have the gauze strip in the wound..does this get left in,does it come out ??..any suggestions appreciated
