I'm a 27 year old male and im one week post op on my l2-l3 microdiscectomy. So far the ride has been up and down and I understand I have awhile before I'm 100 percent but I have a few questions. As far has back pain it's pretty much nothing at this point. Mostly just my back not wanting to relax sometimes when I stand up but I was prescribed medication for that. I have having a concern for my hips and legs. Since the surgery My legs seem weaker and I have pain that I feel right in my hip joints in both legs with my left leg weaker. In bed if I move a certain way I get burning sensations in my upper thigh if I move in certain ways but it seems that has gotten better. I was just wondering if pain in the hip bones and weakness in the legs is normal in my situation. I know as far my back goes I feel so much better than it did and I don't feel like my surgery has failed but I've heard of people walking a lot right out of surgery and that just hasn't been the case for me due to me not having the strength to walk enough. I walk a little bit every few hours but not as much as other people I've noticed.
