Hi, I've searched and searched the forums and I feel that no one has answered my question. I'm currently 12 days post op. I feel I've regained the strength in my left leg and I can actually get in and out of bed with no pain now after 6 years of hell.
I've been trying to take it easy. It's hard as I'm not the sort of person who is always on the go! But I've done as I'm told. I've been alternating sitting, standing, walking and lying down. However today, I've started with a warm sensation in my lower back (under incision site) and into my left buttock. I've also got a pulling feeling from the lower back into my left buttock which is like a burning sensation when I stand or walk. It eases on lying down.
Do you think this is normal for recovery? Maybe a nerve pain or muscular?
I'm really hoping it hasn't reherniated. I'm due for my first PT appointment tomorrow and obviously will ask there. I was just wondering if anyone else had experienced this.
