I'm just over 2 months post l5 - s1 micro D.
In the 2 months since surgery, I've mostly been dealing with pain/numbness/weakness of the foot and calf. I've not had any back/butt pain at all since surgery.
For the last three days, or so, I've been having nerve pain in my back/butt, and just general achiness in my lower back.
I understand recovery is a long road of ups and downs... i fully expect that. My foot/calf pain had done exactly that... some good days, some bad days.
The thing that concerns me is that the back/butt is a completely new pain (which only appeared 2 months in), which I haven't previously experienced at all since beginning recovery.
Is this something to be concerned with, or is it likely just part of the typical/expected "ups and downs"?
