Just had Microdiskectomy April 7th, 2010.
Had a sucessful surgury. Following the surgury the pain down the left leg was gone. After 11.5 months of constant pain and living on narcotics...i was elated. Felt so good after surgury...went back to work 4 days later. Most of what i do involves sitting at a desk...no lifting. Was walking short distances and not lifting, etc... Other than probably sitting for longer periods than I really should have...I am following doctors orders. Problem is two days ago the pain is 80% back...just like before the surgury. Does this mean it didn't work like I thought it did??? Or is it still possible for it to go away. I know it's only been 11 days since the surgury...maybe I'm expecting too much??? I just feel like it worked and then it went backwards. If any one has any thought I'd love to hear.
