L5-S1 Microdiscectomy now at 5 months - updated



  • 5 months and 8 days ago was day of surgery. Its been very up and down.... a little down at the moment. two weeks ago I felt great....almost as good as new. Now I feel like I've taken a clear step backward. Not alarming leg pain or anything, but low back pain for sure. uncomfortable virtually all of the time. I'll take Advil and a muscle relaxer at night that does seem to help. I know this is a process and that some pain my never go away....but I am frustrated at the moment and am losing my sense of humor.

    I want to be "normal" again!!

    Happy New Year!
