Well I made it to the 6 week mark. Go back to see surgeon this next week for 1st time. I am feeling pretty good but my low back is really starting to hurt, but it is a different hurt than it was right after the surgery. It seems to be pretty localized to the disc area that was operated on so just wondering if it could be the healing taking place at that area now? Pretty stiff and achy/sore in that area that wasn't there a week or so ago. I am taking medicine for muscle spasms and they put me on a steroid dose pak yesterday in case I over did it. Anyone else experience this in there recovery?
