Hello everyone in Monique, I had an L5S1 micro disectomy on Oct 17th, today is the 12/6/2014 so as you all know I'm not even 2 months healed, and yesterday I took a fall on the kitchen floor, I'm experiencing some back pain but most importantly left leg sciatic pain not too bad but noticeable. Which was the reason I got the surgery. Should I be concerned would I feel more severe pain with a re herniation?

No one can tell you if what you are feeling is normal considering your fall, however it would be advisable to contact your surgeon to advise him of the fall and see what he recommends.
