Hi. I'm now 4 moths out from having laminectomy/discectomy on L4, 5 & S1 and have been doing very well. Went back to work (office job) after 2 months and all of a sudden I started tightening up and having extreme pain whenever I move.
Anyone else experience this? I called surgeon and he put me on 75mg Dicolfenac 2x/day and 50mg Tetrazepam 1x/day. Pills are doing NOTHING to relieve pain.
I can't sleep very well, as every time I move, I wake up. I can barely walk without screaming. Pain almost seems just as bad or worse than before surgery, except I don't have the radiating pain down the legs now.
Pain is very much localized to lower back and glute area.
Any help, advice, etc... greatly appreciated.
