I am a 18 year old female 7 weeks post L5-S1 microdiscectomy. Before my surgery I had pain running down my left buttock, hip, and all the way down my leg into my foot. Immediately after surgery my leg pain was gone. A couple weeks ago I started having pain in my hip. Today I have started having a lot of pain in my back at the incision. Also I am having pain running down my left leg. I have started having pain on the right side of my buttocks which is new. When I went to my Dr. for my six weeks check up complaining of hip pain, he told me that I was doing too much in therapy. Now that I'm done with therapy and I'm having new problems, my fear of re-herniation seems more and more like reality. I just wanted to get some feedback from anybody who might have been through this.
