I had a discectomy L5/S1 10th june. This has left me with numbnessin my left foot an leg. Also in my bum and i have No toilet control. I currently have to do ISC 4 times a day to wee and well poo just happens. Dr says numbness will settle when inflamation goes down and toilet control will as well.
Anyway last night i was in agony. it felt like someone had put red hot coals in my back and bum. Scar felt hot to the touch. Ended up falling asleep laying on an ice pack. This morning I am still sore but scar doesnt feel so hot. Next appt with dr is next tuesday. Should i be getting seen before then or is this just a bad day.
