It's been a bit since I've written and hope everyone is doing well and pain free. I had my microdiscectomy on 10/3/11 and other then the random sore back here and there, had been doing quite well. Last week (Tuesday), my daughter dropped something in the back of the car. I pulled over and reached back (the toy was behind my seat). I sort of lifted my butt up and twisted and stretched. Although nothing hurt initially, I knew that something was off. Since then I have had bilateral leg pain and soreness in my lower back. I spoke to one of the doctor's assistants on Friday who stated I either re-herniated/new herniation, or that I aggravated the scar tissue and nerve root and to give it a week. I am writing to see if anyone had any similar situations and outcomes. If it is just an aggravation, how long did it take for it to subside, and if it was a reherniation, did you need to have surgery again, or did it heal on it's own? Being home with a three year old, I'm already worrying about another surgery and want to make sure I am doing all that I can. I do plan on calling the surgeon again if this is still going on come Friday, but wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this. Thanks to all!
