I am new to this forum. After reading quite a bit of different scenarios, I couldn't find anything similar to mine.
I had lumbar L3/L4 microdiscectomy six weeks ago. My recovery is going reasonably well except nights and mornings. After relatively painless days, staying in bed causes sharp pain mostly in the front part of my right leg (up to knee) and right thigh every time I'm trying to shift my body one way or the other. Sleeping on one side is not such a problem as sleeping on the other one. After waking up I can barely walk. I need to walk on treadmill, slowly increasing speed, for 15-20 min in order to reduce the pain. Getting in and out of the car requires specific "technique" as well.
If somebody had a similar experience, I'd appreciate the comment.
