I had a microdiscectomy in May. The L5 and S1 nerves were being pressed against the spinal wall and the L5 disc they shaved all excess off.
I did nothing for the two months after surgery and while I did have phantom pains they went away for a good two weeks.
Two days ago the back pain and pain in the leg came back (although not nearly as bad). Is this normal? I am getting nervous that the surgery did not take. Should this pain have come back?
If it did not take, what will they do next? WIll they go back in?
Any help would be appreciated.
