5 weeks post op l5s1 microdisectomy question
Hey guys. I am a new member to this site but I have been reading posts on here for a while . I have had a microdisectomy in my l5 s1 disc for herniation causing low back pain and chronic sciatica. Basically the last 8 months of my life consisted of laying in bed and popping insane amounts of pain killers. Now I am 5 weeks out of surgery and I never thought I would feel this good again. Pain was gone the second I wok.e up from.. surgery. Lower back pain and sciatica. I was amazed. I have been following my doctors orders but a few days ago I had my stitches removed. And I went home and I was laying in bed and when I got up I.felt a nasty tug.. there was a left over stitch that somehow attached itself to something and it yanked quite bad. My question is.. now I have pain around the incision. Its not like it was before. No sciatica.. no low back pain.. no tingling or numbness..but it is a little painful and I just want to know if this could be a sign of reherniation or if the stitches may have just pulled on the tissue inside the incision. Thanks for the help in advance!!!
