So let me start out by saying, prior to surgery, i had a messed up L1 that they had to clean up. It had caused a lot of pain in my left leg whenever I moved it. A sharp pain that could make you scream your lungs out. This had all gone on for about four months so now my leg is a little gimpy. Well now, it's five days later, had the surgery. Doctor said everything went fine, and that I should recover completely in a few months. Yesterday I started to have the pain in my leg again. It wasn't as bad but it was recognizable. Before surgery it was a 9 or 10 pain scale, and yesterday it was like a 2-3, just enough to notice it. Well now it's starting to hurt again when I sit down or get out of bed, but its getting worse. When I rolled out of bed, I nearly screamed. Is this just going to go back to where I was pre op? Or is this normal at first after surgery?
