I’ve posted previously, but hoping to hear more about people who have had similar experiences. I had a MicroD six weeks ago. First two-three weeks were good but still some residual pain. The standout pre-op symptom -- explosive pain when rising from seated position that reached a 10 -- was gone immediately after surgery and has not returned. However, at the four week point, I was feeling so good I went more intense in the gym (elliptical, cycle, lots of stretching and a quick round of dips). For the remainder of that day I still felt excellent. The next morning, I had pain in my calf. Over the next couple of days, the pain level increased and now appears in my buttock, rear thigh, sometimes knee, and calf. 2-4 Advil helps immensely. Dr. put me on a 6 day pred pack, which helped bring the pain from a max level 7 in the mornings, to a 2-3. But as I taper off, the pain is coming back. It flares at times for no apparent reason, sometimes when I change positions, sometimes just because. It's present when I stand, sit or walk. This current pain has been present for two straight weeks (week 5 and 6 of recovery). Did I reherniate the disc?
