How do you all deal with the stress and worry of re-herniating after a microdiscectomy? I am one week post-op and have generally been feeling pretty well, but am also extremely nervous about causing another herniation.
I'm under a lot of pressure to get well quick from my job and also have my wedding and honeymoon coming up in six weeks. The surgery I had last week was basically almost an emergency because of how large the herniation was and how close I was to CES, even though I had very little pain compared to most stories on here.
It's really difficult to handle it all.
