I started have low back pain and severe pain down my right leg, back in march of 2013. Tried chiropractor, massages, with no results. So i made a GP appt and was given a mri, showing a buldge disc on the l5 s1. Physical therapy was started went 2x a week, did not improve symptoms except my abs are stronger now:)
I had a disectomy of the l5 s1, yesterday morning. Leg pain was gone as soon as i was in recovery. Only pain now is at the surgery site.
Praying all goes well, im sure the Lord is tired of hearing from me. So hanging out at home and enjoying not having to do house work:)
Question for you, how long does it take for the surgery site to feel better? I am taking peracet and advil for relief. I walk around the house and my son walked with me around the block.
Any advice would be great! Thank you for your time.
