Had what I thought to be a successful durgery 2 weeks ago. 3 days ago I woke up with back and lt leg pain that hasn't went away. I spoke with surgeon and he stated I probably over did it and placed me on bed rest. This is my second surgery. My first was 10 years ago and I was immediately fixed with no pain post surgery. With this surgery, I felt great at first but now I feel as bad as I did before the surgery. Has anyone out there experinced something like this and if so how long was it before you were pain free? Thanks!


  • My experience was somewhat the same but I did not receive any relief post surgery. That was 7 months ago and I am still in pain but my surgery was failed. trust your doc though and try the bed rest. Keep us posted on your progress.
