So I had my surgery on L5-S1 ob 05/09. Monday was really rough. I only got to get up at lunch time to walk. By the time I got home all I wanted to do is rest. I took a pillow to add to my desk chair and today my back was hurting, but not as bad.
My doctor will not refill my pain meds anymore. My leg pain has been gone since surgery, but I still have the pain at my incision sight which is right at my lower back and after these last two days it has flared up. My surgeon said I needed to see a pain management doctor if I wanted more meds. Is this normal? I'm only 4 weeks post op and the only medication he refilled for me is my muscle relaxer.
Im 30. Had micro diskecetomy on 05/09/13. I had a herniated disc at L5-S1 that after 6 months of different treatments I was only getting worse.
