Re: Post surgery L 5 S1 calf and foot pain.

[QUOTE=Crc23;5062715]Hi there
I had surgery 8 days ago for a badly herniated disc (microdiscetomy)
I know the recovery can take its time however hong long did it take for the pain to go away.

I can't stand or walk for longer than 15 mins without the pain becoming unbearable.i also have developed a limp ididn't have before.

Anyone shed some light on this and your recovery from pain post surgery

Thanks

Hello Chris,

When I had my lumbar fusion (2006) of the L5-S1 region,the recovery time took a while.The doctor ordered home therapy for a month or so,until I was able to be a little mobile.
I started with a walker and in time,was able to store it away.

This is but the beginning of my plight;I pray it is somewhat useful.

Respectfully
Phoenix
