I would like to know how people are recovering and resuming their daily activities and lifestyle after microdiscectomy. Also wondering if anyone has particularly good results and is easing back to exercise and work. I'm almost 7 wks post op as of June 15th and I'm now back to work full time and have been exercising beyond normal walking for one week now. I'm relatively free of pain with the occassional sensations in my feet that are brief. I would like to start weight lifting again by week 8, modified of course and cycling by 3 months (being very conservative here). Anyone else with similar goals or experiences?
I am 42 y/o old and have a moderately physical job. History of 7 yrs mild to severe sciatica of the left lower extremity and severe nerve tension. Good response to 3 epidurals but pain would return with activities that involved rotation and/or flexion of my spine.
