Hi all. Had l5s1 microdiscectomy about four weeks ago. At 2 week post op visit I was told I could go back to do the normal routine such is laundry and cleaning . now for weeks now I am in more pain than I was before even have the surgery . I called the office and they were saying that you know the microdisectomy was for leg pain not back pain . I kinda felt like I was stupid was it the wrong surgery . they are gone try a medrol dosepak to try to reduce the swelling in the nerves . I am so upset that maybe I DID TOO much too soon and hat I may need a fusion. They want me to call back mid next week and possibly schedule an emg I think? It's a nerve test. I am so tired of bri.g in pain and not being able to do what I want and need to do to run the household. This is so depressing. Doctor said to note if I am having back pain or leg pain. Kinda a little of both. Anyone else have these issues. So upset!
