Hi all. On Tuesday last week (18/02/14) I hade a microdiscectomy on L4/L5 after 2 1/2 years of chronic pain in my left leg. After the surgery everything was fine no pain whatsoever in my legs and only slight pain at the site of incision. Anyway on Sunday night 5 days after the surgery as I was turning in bed mid turn I had a coughing fit and felt a sharp pain shoot down my left leg and now I've got a constant pain in the back of my left thigh, left knee and calf with slight tingling in my foot. The pain is worse then before the surgery can't really put weight on that leg. I've phoned my neurosurgeon on Tuesday who said to continue to take tablets and he will phone me on Friday to see if Its still bad. I'm a little worried I may of Reherniated it when I was coughing. The consultant said its a little stange as the op went really well and he thought he'd got it all out. Any ideas what could be going on?
