Recovery after L5-S1 endoscopic discetomy

Hi Everbody,

I had L5-S1 since 2011 because of GYM and felt Weakness and numbness in the left hip & leg, I visited many doctors & tried many medicines & injections but all were useless so I decided to do an endoscopic discetomy last February, Surgery successes and Doctor told me to start physical therapy after 6 weeks, after surgery all pain gone, After 15 days pain came back but better than before the surgery, I visited the doctor, He said that nerves are relieving and it will take time, Something like nerves renewing..!!!

After 3 mons of surgery & while I'm doing physical therapy, I felt like the pain goes and comes back, In addition the pain is changed in each period, I don't know why ?!!

My last visit to doctor, Clinical examination was good, I asked him to do MRI to check my situation, he said MRI result will not be clear in this time, so better to do it after 5 months ( a year after the operation ).

I feel like 50 % of nerve pain in my left leg for last two weeks, I don't know how to describe it exactly :(

I thought I will be fine after 3 mons of surgey..!!!

how long does it take for recovery ?
when should I do the MRI after the operation ?

Sorry for the prolongation, but sciatica change the color of sky from blue to gray
