 Microdiscotomy incision pain

I had microdiscotomy L5-S1 two days ago. Came out of it feeling good. No more sciatic pain at all. The incision site where they cut my back to go in was somewhat sore and tender but not that bad. I woke up this morning and the incision site is pretty tender and really sore in that area when I try to get in and out of a chair or the bed. I am guessing its just that everything they used during and after surgery wore off and thats why I am feeling it more. But I wanted to check in with everyone and see what your experiences have been like for this situation. Thanks



  • I just had my 2nd Discectomy surgery on February the 27th. My first day post op was when my incision pain started a lot more. But my back was very bruised and was very swollen as well!! After the first week post op my incision pain has gotten a lot better!!! Have you tryed using ice?? That seemed to help me a lot with my swelling and pain. I pray that you have an easy recovery!!!

  • Thanks for your reply, I have used ice a couple times, I think (hope) its just part of the healing process. It seems like it is, I just thought I would reach out and see what others have experienced. Other than the insicion stight bothering me every thing else has been good.
