I'm a 41 y/o physical therapist, one week post op L4-5 microdiscectomy/decompression. I have a hx of 6 yrs of L sciatica pain and severe nerve tension signs. Limited with my recreational activities such as long distance cycling and have been unable to do any spinal flexion or rotation without flaring up my nerve pain for the past 2 yrs. I'm currently not experencing the nerve tension I had prior to surgery and i'm having intermittent mild discomfort in my L 2nd and 3rd toes. I am revovering well and walking up to 3 blocks.
Has anyone else here had a micro and doing well?
