  • Firstly, I'm sorry you're both now experiencing pain again.

    I had the same op a week ago and haven't had any sciatic pain since, only pain from the surgery. I'm really hoping it stays this way.

    I wasn't given any instructions not to bend, etc. wasn't given much info on my discharge. I was provided with a link to a YouTube video with physio exercises & told to take things easy & gradually work up to a normal routine. I've put trainers on normally (1st time in about 6/7 months), squatted down to pick things up, hung up my wet washing, etc.

    I'm now scared I may be doing more than I should, I feel ok doing it, but don't want to put myself at risk of jepodising my recovery. Don't know whether to carry on, or take a few steps back.
