I’m 4 months post op of L4-5 microdiscectomy. Before surgery I was in constant pain and limping when walking. I woke up from surgery and I felt amazing because the pain was completely gone. I followed through with physical therapy for 4 weeks to build core strength and still no pain. I have been walking every morning and doing rehab exercises on my own since surgery. 2 weeks ago I came down with the flu and it’s the only time I didn’t do any exercises for 7 days. After I started feeling better I started my exercise routine again. 3 days ago I woke up with sciatic pain again! I have no back pain, but it feels like I have a muscle spasm on my nerve in my glute area. Has anyone has this problem with muscle spasms in this area so long after surgery? I would love to contact my neurosurgeon but he moved to a different city, which I didn’t find out he was doing until after my surgery.
