I had my discectomy almost 9 weeks ago. Now my leg pains are a lot better but I have stiffness and pain in my lower back, which pulls right up my spine and down to my hips. Feels like either some muscles are in spasm or a nerve is tethered or both.
Did anyone else have this? Is it best to try and stretch through it or does stretching just make it worse? Did anyone use muscle relaxants or painkillers? Which ones? How long did you have this problem for?
My PT doesn't seem to be very sure about it at all which makes me nervous.
Thanks for your help!
