How long do you have incision pain after microdiscectomy?

I was just wondering how long is normal to have incision pain after a microdiscectomy. I had one 4 weeks ago. I still get twinges when sitting too long or moving wrong which I try to avoid. It seems OK when I walk just every once in a while it'll hurt just for a second then go away. I have heard it takes about 3 months for the surgery pain to go away. Is this the experience with others? Also the pain shoots out about 3" away from the incision to the left of it. I assume that is normal and will go away. Please let me know.

Three months is a good number. I had every kind of ache and twitch you can think of happening. It all lessoned over time.

Kari, I don't believe what your feeling is at all uncommon, as for how long it takes to heal it varies from person to person, my dr informed me I am a very slow healer.
Four weeks really isn't that long even though it may seem so.

I had a microdisectomy approx. 8 yrs. ago and i never had any incision pain. But i sure suffer in other parts of my body. I'm not the same. I sure found out that your never the same after someone opens your back. I truly hope your successful at healing and no other problems.
