I have posted a couple of times since my surgery -- I was very lucky that I had very little pain from the surgery and my recovery has been rapid. maybe too rapid as I also posted that I worried that I overdid it. well, on day 6, I started feeling a bit of pain down my left leg (this is the one that I had the terrible sciatica in pre-surgery.) I told myself that it was probably due to the fact that I just finished a 6 day course of predinsone so the nerve swelling might be acting up. And the nature of the sciatica is different -- it's not caused by sitting (more from walking now) and it's not the same type of pain. This feels more like pulling and a bit of numbness instead of blinding nerve pain. But still...it seems to be increasing. I'm seeing the doctor for my follow-up and I have read enough posts here that seem to say that this is normal right after the surgery, but I'm freaking out a bit. This was my last resort and an expensive resort at that. Have any of you experienced this post op and had it resolve?
