I had surgery 7/20/2016. I am 5 weeks post op. It was a micro disectomy and laminectomy (sp) on L5-S1. I have been out of work for the whole time. I am having alot of burning and pain in my bum and sitting is impossible without pain. I can go about 2 hours and my lower back is so tired I feel like I will break in half. It always irritates my nerve. I feel another 2 weeks would be best as I do not want this pain to reoccur. My Dr. says that irritation will last for awhile, but no reason to be out longer. Has anyone experienced this? I am not sure what to do? Thanks for any help!
