Hi guys. Just had a microdiscectomy on my L5/S1 ( I think that's the right level) )
I'm just over 4 weeks post op and I'm suffering from nerve pain again :-( it's going down my glute, hamstring and ocasionally down to my caff..
Directly after the op the nerve pain was gone, think this is partially down to the morphine... For the first 2 weeks post op my back was great and I had no never pain at all..
I then moved back home after 2 weeks post op (stayed at my aunties directly after op) and the nerve pain started again. Not sure what to do. Haven't been walking and doing as much rehab as I should but haven't done anything to cause this pain to start again...
What's the chances of me reherniating? I have an app in 2 weeks with my neurosurgeon and I'm going to request another MRI scan
