I'm back post microD surgery May 23

hello everyone I'm back
been a few months since I've been on here I got really discouraged with some of the comments so I took a break from here so to make a long story short
I finally had my surgery how to micro D of L4 L5.
the pain is still pretty harsh been on percocets for all this time months months months the sciatic pain is still really severe uh worse than before surgery I'm hoping will get better as time goes on.
back pain is about he same as it was prior to surgery.

I've mostly been using ice on my back since surgery May 23rd and today I started using heat to see if that helps with the sciatic pain.
I was in the hospital overnight because I couldn't be mad give me a catheter.
I've had a catheter before but never when the bladder was so full I was so happy to have one.

anyhow I just wanted to say hi to everybody and let you know I had my surgery and I am healing very slowly.
