3 days post op!! Microdiscectomy L5/S1 & dual tear with fluid leak. Bed rest & light head/dizzy?


I had my op on Wednesday evening and what should of been a hour odd job turned out to be 4! Apparently my disc was completely stuck so this resulted in a dual tear. They wasn't actually sure if I had had a leak as I had no symptoms of one but I was placed on flat bed rest for 48 hours in hospital & it was just HORRIBLE! I am now sitting up for the first time since my op and it feels wonderful although I am going very light headed! I'm waiting for physios to come to stand me up & im just very nervy about it! Has anybody else experienced this?
