I'm 2 weeks out of my L5S1 microdiscectomy and I'm feeling pretty good. I walk a little more than 3 miles a day and have no pain in my right leg (where I originally had sciatica).
I have 2 quick questions:
1. I've started to get a few twinges in my left leg. Not pain exactly, it feels almost like it's being stretched when it definitely isn't. It feels sort of like my right leg did before it got badly herniated. Could I have reherniated? Or could this be a side effect from the surgery and it might go?
2. I have a 3-hour exam this Saturday that I can't miss. Will sitting down for 3 hours increase my risk of herniation or will it just cause pain? The pain I can deal with, but re-herniation I don't want to risk.
