New to the forum. 39 year old man from London. In recent months have had bad time with discs. Two herniations L4 L5 and L5 S1. Two discectomies, most recent two weeks ago on L4 L5. Two weeks out from second operation still have pain in both legs. More or less same as before operation. Worst when sit even for five or ten minutes, but also standing, walking, etc etc.Pain around the clock. No pain medication seems to work. But even then could handle it if knew if/when pain will go. Any views much appreciated especially options or if I just need to wait. At what time can we really say operation has or hasn't worked?
