Why if all of my pain is so called related to degenerative disc disease that it came on so soon? Wouldn't it be something that would gradually start hurting and not all at once after my microdiscectomy? I really don't know if I agree with my NS. I have asked around at my work and everybody agrees with me. It's kind of like instead of healing from my micro things have changed but for the worst. My pain is in both legs and not just one. Could the surgeon have maybe did something to stir things up when he was in there? Could he possibly removed too much disc? Is that even possible? I know after several herniations that there isn't alot of disc material left. I don't see him again until Aug 4th. I really think I need a new MRI. I am just confused but it doesn't make since. 4 months out I should be better and not the same or worse.
