Sciatica pain forming on opposite side now

Well 2 months after Laminectomy / microdiscectomy l4 l5 ,the pain level still high. Between work and therapy no relief without medication . Even with meds pain still nagging my every move. New problem adjacent sciatica pain starting on right Side Of L4 L5 . Worried I'll need further surgery and treatment in addition to my exercise and physical therapy . Any suggestions besides taking it easy . I'm losing weight still need to lose 25 pounds for healthy weight.

  • Have you been in the pool at all? I found I had pain when walking/exercising when land based. I swapped some of my walking for water walking & found it easier to cope with.
    I'm assuming your surgeon says the pain is nothing to be worried about at this stage. If it persists may be worth talking to your surgeon again.
    I hope you get relief soon,
