Hi my name is Sue, and I had my disk and decompression surgery almost 4 weeks ago after a fall which happened a year ago and I have more pain now than I did before my op...usually it's worse in the mornings as I get out of bed and goes as the day progresses. Some days are worse than others and I have a tightening or pins and needle sensation down my leg at times. I knew it wouldn't be instant relief but I'm now worried that my op hasn't worked. I just worry as don't know what is normal ? I guess I just needed to have somewhere I could open up and talk to.
