Hello all, I'm new to the Spine-Health forum. I'm not going to lie- reading all of the posts on here scares the living daylights out of me. I just had a microdiscectomy 5 weeks ago for an L5/S1 herniation that I have been in pain from for 1.5 years. Everything was fine until about a week ago when i ended up in the ER because of my pain, only to realize I have already re-herniated the same disc. My surgeon had me get a steroid injection 3 days after the ER which helped some, but now 1 week after the ER visit, the pain is getting bad again. I have an appointment to see my surgeon this week to talk about options but i'm just so frustrated that he hasn't seemed to map out a plan for me yet and i'm just sitting in limbo. I'm getting married in October and I'm worried I won't be able to go on my honeymoon because of the pain! My surgeon is saying that we are going to have to see how my symptoms are to determine if I can even start post-op PT, which he usually has patients start 6 weeks out. If anyone has re-herniated so quickly after a MicroD, any input is much appreciated. Thanks all.
