im 3 days before a discectomy surgery on my l4/l5 disc
Im 23 year old male bodybuilder for almost 4 years.
About 6 months ago while deadlifting i hurt my back, had to rest for couple days because i could barely walk.
After about a month most of the pain gone but i had pain while trying to put straight my leg.
Firstly it didn't bother me because during the day i had very little pain and i was still going to gym every day for the next 5 months. After this period about 2-3 months ago the pain started to grow so i had to use medicins(ibuprofen) almost every day. After 1 pill i had no pain for entire day.
I've dont RMI and it show hernitation 1cm on l5/l6( yes i have 6 disc on spine)
I started PT and had nice result,was training my core every day. after 1,5 mont the hernitation is down to 9mm but i still have sciatica pain when rising leg. Doctor told me that the only way to complete avoid pain is surgery.
I'm gonna have surgery in couple days so im asking if there are some people with similar simptoms to me?
I dont fell pain after walking(only sometimes when i overdo with traing) i can sit without pain for 2 hours and i feel no pain while lying on bed.
So it's wierd because the hernitation is big. I hope thanks to very low pain now i will be able to quick recover after and go back to bodybulding. My surgeon said i will be fully healed within 2-3 months thanks to very light symptoms now
What do you think?
