I had a microdiscectomy L5-S1 8/1/12. After the 2 weeks of pain from the incision I felt great. No pain running down my leg, no burning in my cheek, I felt like a new person. I went for my follow up & the surgeon was very happy with how I was healing. Long story short I took a trip while I was recovering just at my one month surgical anniversary. When I returned home I was not thinking & lifted a 45lb piece of luggage off of the conveyor belt. Then my mind started to play tricks on me that I reinjured myself. I have a little bit of numbness on the top of my foot, but other than that I just felt sore like I just worked out. I just really would like to know anyone's personal healing stories, what I should expect, & what is abnormal.
Thank you for any of your advice
