Two Months Post Mic-D...New back/butt pain

Hey all,

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"?



  • Hi there I had same procedure 3 months ago. The numbness in my toe and calf comes and goes for no reason, but the nerve takes along time to Regenerate. The good news is it will. As for your butt and leg pain, you need to be consistent with your stretching. I get tightness often there and when I do my stretching of the glutes and legs daily I usually can control it.
