I am 6 days out of a MIcroDiscectomy on my L5 S1 area which I had because of foot pain caused by an impinged S1 nerve. I have had no change whatsoever in my foot pain - no better, no worse - just the same . I keep reading about folks who woke up from surgery and their pain was magically gone ... Have any of you had a slower recovery where the nerve pain persists after the op ? I am soooo sick of this !
Please spell out MD
Six days out of surgery. You need to be patient, recovery does not happen overnight
