Back Problems board


Has anyone experienced this? I'm getting so scared...
4 weeks post micro-d - after a week I had bad pain in my right leg (the original problem), started taking Arthrotec (an anti-inflam) for it, doc said to take it for 2 weeks - now (thank goodness) have just had occasional pain in that leg and I've been off the Arthrotec for 4 days. But starting a few days ago, I've been noticing pain in my left calf mostly and some soreness in my left hip. It feels like a milder version of my original nerve pain, not like a muscle spasm.

I can't talk to my doc for another 1.5 weeks...Did anyone have this? I'm so afraid I've reherniated on the other side, my pre-surgery MRI said a moderately large central disc protrusion with a larger, more prominent right sided focal component - made sense considering I only had pain in my right leg until now!

It's not so bad I can't function and I'm going to try going back to work tomorrow, scaled-down hours. I've been so careful and can't imagine going through all this again on the other side! Do you guys think it'll go away with time?

Thanks for listening, M

I am not doctor but my wife has similar type of pain, after dignosting for 1.5 years with aurtho, it was understood that not relate with bones but related with Psytica. Just check with that. I got good relief by Aurvedic medicine.
