Helli everyone. Recently I fell at 5weeks right onto my Ass, it's the same as if someone cut two of my legs off I fell that hard. Before I fell I got really weak and thats when I collapsed, it was very odd the way I felt prior to falling, this is the second time this has happened since my surgery, except the first time I never fell. Since my fall I'm starting to have a little more sciatic pain then from before, I hope I never reherniated that disc, I don't think I did but I'm getting that sciatica back a little. And I'm concerned about these nearly fainting episodes. My family doc sent me for blood work and an ekg, the ekg came back fine still waiting on blood work results. NS appointement in 2 more weeks. Any advice or help would be great
