I had a L4/L5 microdisectomy 6 weeks ago after dealing with sciatica for about 9 months. I'm still not feeling any better as I have trouble walking and standing up. I can't walk more than 50 feet and can't stand up for more than 3 minutes or so. Saw my Spine Surgeon the other day, who is still baffled why I am not better, and he has me starting Physical Therapy. Just curious if anyone else has gone through a long and painful rehab after surgery. I'm starting to think that I will never get better.
