I'm about 7 months post microdiscectomy L5S1. Since the op, I've had little pain and have even been gyming regularly (not back to what i had been doing before, but more core-focus). Over the past 2 weeks have had a dull pain in the lower back, which I've written off as related to period pain or cramps. Now I'm really feeling like I need a "good stretch" which is exactly how I felt just before the herniation. I've also taken a few anti-inflam pills.
My question is, besides ant-inflam and resting, what else can I do?
Before it really does re-herniate, can the physio or NS do anything?
Anyone experienced anything similar?
