I had the first MD for L5/S1 on 5th September and the disc ruptured within a week so had a revision on the 29th September.
The pain after the 2nd was really bad but did settle down after a couple of days. It's now 5 weeks and I've had a lot of tingling sensations in both legs now whereas prior to the surgery it was just the left leg that hurt.
I'm also experiencing pain on the spine where the incision is. It actually hurts when I gently press it. Have gone into a complete panic that I've slipped the disc again. I'm seeing the Surgeon next week for the 6 week follow up but am really scared.
I walk every day but still can't sit for longer than 10 minutes without my back hurting.
I would really love to hear from anyone whose had a revision.
