Anyone re-herniated their disc after microdiscectomy
Just a little background information. Two weeks ago I had a microdiscectomy done on my L4 L5 disc. Everything seemed to be doing okay for the 1st 10 days or so. The only thing that I noticed that was different was I had a numbness and a tingle in my right foot which I didn't have before surgery. But the pain in my right buttocks n ankle calf area had gone away. The doctor said that was normal because the disc was impinged for so long.
Over the last 4 days or so my right hamstring and right buttock have been more tender than usual almost feeling like how it felt pre-op. I am afraid that I reherniation the same disc. The weird thing is that the numbness and tingling in my right foot has been slowly getting better. Anyone experienced this before?
