I wanted to ask you all what you think about this. I had a MicroD surgery on L5, S1 a little over 4 weeks ago, and the focus had been on my right side. A few days ago I started to have a "twinge" on my left buttock, and it feels similar (but not near as strong) as the pain I used to feel on my right buttock prior to surgery. Is it possible I've done something to herniate a disk and affect the nerve on my left side now? It comes and goes, mostly I have noticed the twinge after sleeping on my side, with a pillow between my knees. Any chance it's just a muscle I haven't used in a while and that I'm sleeping wrong? I haven't lifted anything heavy or done anything out of the ordinary. Wouldn't the MRI have seen a potenial problem on the left side?
I hope I am just over-reacting and it's nothing!
