Hi my name is Sophie I'm 23 and just had a discectomy surgery on 04-04-2016. I was injured back in Nov. 2015 and haven't had much relief from pain. I was prescribed pain medications and other stuff to help with nerve pain but nothing has seemed to work. I know that I'm only a couple of days Post OP but I am getting very discouraged and worried that I am going to always be in pain. Since my surgery my pain has only gotten worse. The only thing that I hope from this forum is to read stories of others recoveries good or bad so I don't feel as alone. My family is very sympathetic but don't quite understand everything that I am going through. And nights like these where the pain is unbearable and I have taken and done everything that I can to try and ease my pain it is nice to read that I am not alone.
I also want to say thank you in advance to everyone sharing their stories of recovery its very helpful and nice to see I'm not the only one having a hard time.
