Has anyone had a similar situation to mine?
I'm 2 years post op MD from a severe herniation on my L5/S1. I was at a point where I had a trouble with urinating, walking, etc nothing gave dealable relief.
Now I trying to figure out if I'm having a flare up or a herniation again. This time around it started having pain from doing backsquats the day after.
Im on day 16 with siactica in my right leg going to the calf the pain varys from 2-4 on a 1-10 pain scale. Only time I get relief that it almost feels completely gone is when I wake up in the morning before moving. The weird thing is I'm able to lift my affected leg up a full 90 degrees with no increased pain or issues. (Where before surgery I could barley get it off the ground.) When I laugh, cough or sneeze I have no increased pain whats so ever where before it was the worst pain I've ever felt. I even can full sprint and it not much a issue. Also I can sit down but after awhile my leg gets annoyed. I'm not in bad shape as before, but it's at a annoying level. Maybe I can get some similarities, thoughts or opinions?
