Oh goody, Isn't that nice that after experiencing pain cuz of a herniation we still have to face spasms? I had one big one on the Left side that happened right after my operation.
The pain was right about the L5 to the left. It was like a stabbing. Sometimes the pain was so big I couldn't even move. I thought I was having a new herniation since my surgery was performed on the Right side. The pain lasted 6 to 7 months.
