I have had three surgeries in June/July to repair a torn L5/S1 disc. The third surgery was to repair my spine, which was torn. Not sure how that happened. Now, I have a constant pain in both of my buttocks and in my righ ham string. I am taking Oxy-Codone, which relieves the pain, but I would like to get off of this stuff and return to a normal life. My surgeon is telling me that this type of pain does appear and will eventually go away with walking, stretching and light jogging. I am 3 months out from my last surgery and the pain is no better or worse. Has any of you experienced this? If yes, what are you or did you do to relieve the pain? Thanks.
