Exclamation 1 week post discectomy--help

Had a perc. discectomy 9 days ago. Felt great after surgery. 4 days post op, I was moving up in my bed and felt something pull in my lower back. I am now having severe butt pain and a pain down the outside of my thigh. Had spasms too. Ice seems to help, but this is still bad after 5 days. Anyone with similar symptoms. I'm just preying that I did not reherniate, and maybe it's muscular. My pain is not the same as before surgery. Advice PLEASE!!!!!!!

It could either as you described.. soft tissue or reherniated. I would follow up with your doctor, since it's been 5 days now and you are not better. Let us know how you are doing.

I will. I do not go back to him until Nov. 10th. Guess I'll call on Mon.
