I am now 3 months post op after md on l5/s1. I had a herniated disc for six months prior to my op, but have had back problems for over 10 years. my scans also showed I have DDD. for the first few weeks I felt immediate relief from my sciatica and started walking little by little each day which was a bit of a struggle but got better day by day. i felt like i was on the road to recovery but when i returned to work 8 weeks after surgery i was still unable to sit for any amount of time. i am still waiting on p.t as my doctors have a waiting time of 8 weeks but am due to start in 2 weeks time. i have tried to continue with work but i can not concentrate on any task as after only 15 mins the pain starts and the pressure builds. this morning i have phoned my consultant and am waiting for a phone call from him. i am at a real stumbling block and cannot get past this. i feel like i have gone backwards since trying to return to my normal activites. i still have no social life as the effort it takes to attend my work and the pain because of it. i am now under pressure from my employers but i cant get past this point. my life has turned around dramatically over the last 9 months and now i cannot overcome this situation and i feel my job is close to being jeopardised. im feel under pressure now and don't know what to do. i cant speak to people around me about this because i don't want them to worry and feel the pressure that i am feeling. where do i go from here?
