: I had a microdiscectomy 3 weeks ago. I woke up from surgery with no leg pain, but about 4 days after surgery I noticed the leg pain was coming back. It's now been 3 weeks and leg pain is still there. Any ideas as to what's going on? Did the surgery fail? If not, how long before leg pain goes away? Thanks.

:my brother had a microdisectomy and still had the leg pain as you have. He had to go back and have a lumber fusion after about 3 months. the mri after microdisectomy showed no reherniation of the disc, however when the dr. preformed the surgery for fusion, he found that the disc had indeed reruptured. i would consult your phsyician with this info. this was in lexington ky. dr. tibbs
