How do you know if you re-herniated a disc?

Hi everyone,

I am about one month past my operation and I was wondering if anyone has had a recurrence or re-herniated disc. Is it usually pretty obvious with a sudden recurrence of severe pain or can it slowly progress over time. I still have pain in the butt cheek area and a little bit down my leg when I extend my leg out and tuck my chin in. Could this be a recurring disc of just aggravating the sciatic nerve?

    You are so very close in terms of post surgical recovery. During this timeframe you are bound to experience many different feelings. Some good and those that do not allow for happy feelings . You are into your post surgical phase which can be over quicker and quicker.
