Hello from Slovenia,
First of all i apologize for my English, because i am writing from Slovenia. I was searching for answers on Slovenian sites but with no success, so i found this forum, and i hope that you can help me with some questions that i have.
I herniated my disc most probably due to exercise(gym), and i had pain down my leg for like 4 months, the MRI showed a large hernia 14mm x 8mm pressing on S1 nerve. They suggested surgery, because i am young(29y) and very active person and couldn't live with this pain and not able to do sports and move freely. After a second opinion i decided for surgery, hoping that my pain will go away after surgery, but not all went as planed.
I was operated on May 19. the surgeon said that the surgery went well that it was a large hernia, but they removed it all. I was happy to hear that, and i also didnt feel any pain... But then after 3 days when i started to move around, walk a little, i started noticing d same pain plus something new in my toes and calf muscles. Now two weeks after surgery a feel the same pain as before the surgery, the pain goes trough my buttock hamstring and in to calf muscle, and also when i sit i have this strange pain in my toes.
I am feeling quite depressed because of this, as i taught that it will finally get better, but i am feeling the same as before the surgery, the same pain if a bend a little i feel like something presses on the nerve. Is it possible that they dint remove everything?? is this normal post surgery pain?? will this go away??
My personal doctor just prescribed my some ibuprofen retard, but it doesn't help...
Thank you very much for anything that you can think off.
