I had a L4L5 discectomy/laminectomy done on March 20th. I would like to hear if anyone has an "I was in pain for a few weeks but did eventually feel better" stories. I had been feeling semi-ok, but these past two days have been almost as bad as before! I just want to believe that this is all part of the healing process and that it's too soon (3-1/2 weeks) to say whether my surgery was a success or not. The painful "pulled muscle" sensation that I had before is mostly gone, but it's been replaced with straight-up pain. Most of the weakness had been gone but my legs are feeling a little weak again. I know everyone heals differently, but I would like to hear if anyone has had a similar experience. Thanks!
