I had L4/L5 microdisc 4 days ago.
Recovery seemed to be going great. Nerve pain gone, just some expected pain at the incision site.
Today I was upend about a bit more than I have been. And tonight my ankle is really achy. I put compression socks on as a precaution, but its not really helping.
My symptoms don't really match deep vein thrombosis, which was my first concern. But I don't know what else to do at this point.
Compressed Discs/DDD - L2/L3, L3/L4
