I had a discectomy on L5/S1 - revision, and also at L4/L5. After surgery I felt alot better but started to slowly get some numbness which I know is common. The first 4 weeks were great but the next few weeks after I went back to work it started to hurt again. Im sure all that is normal but I it seems lately Ill have a few good days and start to think the pain is slowly going away. Then out of no where Ill have a bad day like today. I didnt do anything today or yesterday to make it worse, but for some reason I am in alot of pain.
Its not as bad as before surgery, but its still pretty bad just different. Its more of an iritated feeling in my leg and a bruised feeling on the bottom of my foot.
I guess my question is it normal at 2 months to still get a good amount of pain? Numbness I would be ok with and wouldn't scare me too much but the pain does scare me. I really dont think I reherniated the disc, but I am alittle concerned that Im feeling this way.
