What's the worst flare up you've had?

I guess I'm hoping for some hope. 6 months out from a L5/S1 microD and I'm either going through a terrible flare up or I re-herniated. (I'm in the process of talking to my doctor and started steroid pack) 

What's the worst it got for you even though you ended up being fine? Maybe this thread (if it grows) could help others that are freaking out that they re-herniated.

  • I'm 3.5 months out and I haven't had anything I would consider a flare-up. Occasionally I get what feels like ligament pain in my groin area, but I haven't felt sciatic pain since week 2.

    Does your flare-up match back to the same disc level as the one operated on?
