I had a L5-S1 microdisectomy 7 weeks ago after suffering with a disc prolapse since December 2012. I've been doing pretty well and the numbness has gone. Started exercising and even made it to the gym a couple times.
My consultant said it was fine for me to return to work after 6 weeks. I did, and it wasn't.
I have leg pain and back pain again and I can feel my nerve going crazy.
I guess I'm asking: Am I back to square one? Because it sure feels like that on the pain scale.
I've already lost a year of my mobility and proper life to this. I am 27.
Any guidance is most appreciated. Please feel free to share your experiences - I've heard positive thinking can demonstrably help...
