Hi everyone, I had my surgery discectomy L5 S1 on January 22nd. I have been feeling well. Saw the doctor on February 6th no pain things were good. On Friday I started PT on the 9th. The exercises were simple. The PT said I may be sore. I wasn't sore on Saturday but felt pain behind my left leg again not to bad but I knew it was there. I did the at home exercises she gave me Saturday and Sunday. Sunday night last night the pain was a bit worse. I took a pain med last night which I have been off the pain meds for awhile. Did I start PT to early the doctor said to start so I did. I am so scared. This is how it all started 3 months ago which led to the surgery. I know its only been3 weeks since the surgery and to be patience but I just wonder if it was to soon to start PT. I am going to call the doctor today. I am supposed to have PT today and I am going to talk to her. Just looking for some guidance. I do not want to do this all again. Thank you.
