Have I reherniated?? Help!

Hi there I’m 3 and a half weeks post Microdiscectomy on my L4/L5 I’ve just been in the shower shaved my legs come out fine for the last hour. Then I went to stand up and felt my bandage on my back fall off naturally and suddenly had a stabbing pain in my outer calf (same said as the op) and the ankle joint. I can barely walk the pain is awful. My upper thigh and back feel okay not great but not ridiculously painful. 

Any help would be much appreciated x

    The only person that can answer that question is your surgeon. If the pain is that bad please call your doctor.

    Please stick with the discussion that you started the other day regarding the same subject.   Having two discussions dealing with the same subject will cause confusion among other members.

    I am closing this one, so that you can concentrate on the original discussion thread.
