Hello everyone if you're reading this. Please read my last post to see how I ended up with a l5 s1 Microdiscectomy surgery.
I have questions regarding it.
I'm one week & a day post surgery. Today is 10/25/2014 I had it at 10/17/2014 & took about 2 hrs. Anyways before surgery I wasn't having ANY back pain. But CONSTANT 24/7 SHARP PAIN FROM UNDER MY LEFT BUTTCHEEK DOWN TO MY ANKLE. . & IN THE MORNINGS I COULDN'T WALK BECAUSE IT WAS SO STIFF AND HORRIBLE PAIN.
Now after surgery I have no leg pain like that thank you Jesus, but I'm concerned. My left leg that was giving me problems feels tight, and my ankle feels sorta week. But no sharp pain like before thank you Jesus. I'm scared my pain is coming back? I'm walking alot like I'm supposed to be but I'm not over doing it. But basically my leg feels as if it needs to be strengthen & loose because it feels tight. I just really hope my leg pain isn't coming back. I see my Surgeon 10/31/2014. But how many of you guys had what I have, & have had complete success but some leg pain come back? Or complete failure? Or is it just the nerve going back to normal? I had this pain before surgery for a god 4 months. So as long as the pain i was having doesn't come back (knock on wood) I guess I'll be fine. it's just when I walk I feel like my leg is tight or as if it just got done stretching or needs to be stretched. No pain asscociated.
SN: I'm still on my norcos , I'm taking 10-325 mg Hydrocodone & Dizapam 5mg.
when I wake up my pain now is like a 4 maybe a 3 wout them but I'm still taking them.
