As promised, I am here once again with a post op update. Today I have reached the 4 week mark, and I do not feel that my surgery has worked as well as planned. Now before you all yell at me,
please know that I am having less pain the prior to surgery, which I am thrilled about! However, I am still having lower back pain, and nerve pain down my right leg. I have yet to see any change in my leg symptoms since the 1st day post op until now. Doc has said it will take a while .... but when does awhile come to an end??
I see him again in a few weeks, and I hope that he will be confident enough to send me to PT.
Sorry to be such a complainer....... it is just so very frustrating!
I am 6 months post op from m/d and still have problems, although nothing like befrore. 1 month is very early and nerve pain can take a long time to go completely. Dont lose hope, still very early days for you yet.
