Ok, this is just another post from me asking 'is this normal, anyone else experience this'..
My surgery was june 25th, had a very large herniated disk, got a microdiscetomy/double laminectomy on my l4/5.
Now all my pain in my leg that was crippling me is TOTALLY gone and not come back since i woke up in the hospital..
but the backpain i can get omg.. It used to be there all the time, but now it comes if I sleep on my bed (a tempur pedic fyi, so its like mega foam matress).. When i wake up after sleeping on my bed its like i am back in week 2 of my recovery iwth the back pain: cannot bend over, cannot barely get up etc due to shooting pains in my lower back around the incision.. like someone is sticking a rod down my spine.
I sleep on the couch and im just fine in teh morning..
Anyone other microdiscetomy patients can tell me how their back felt 2 months out ?
