Good evening everyone,
I've been watching, reading and more reading for the last few months. On July 11th I had a l4/l5 & l5/s1 discectomy, also the DR scraped (sorry cant remember the real term) out the canal to allow my nerves more room. Basically have been having off and on episodes of right leg pain for 6 years, until 2 months ago my entire right leg went numb and that was enough for me.
Now, my story today, went to my Dr and spoke about numbness taking forever to heal... ya know, the same ole same ole.. however on my way home I stopped to get a couple new pillows and getting into the car I felt a strain around my right hip, upper right leg area. Once home I tried getting into bed for a nap and felt a really sharp pain (charlie horse type) from my right hip down to my right knee.
So a few questions, and opinions if ya'll would. 1) How do you know if you have reherniated your disc? 2) Is that hip pain the nerves reawakening, or could I have actually done something to hurt it? 3) Any suggestions to help with this?
Also, I have read through most of the introductions, etc.. and am just looking for fresh comments for me.
