I am 8 days post op from a microdiscectomy to relieve a lumbar herniated disc. Prior to surgery I had terrible sciatic pain from my buttocks down through my calf and left foot.
Immediately after surgery the pain was gone completely. For the past 4 days I have had excruciating nerve pain and muscle spasms in my left leg again. It lasts all day if I walk at all. The only relief comes from laying down.
Has anyone else experienced this and is this part of the normal healing process?
Would love to hear from anyone that is experiencing this.
