seen my doc today and had a MRI with contrast and he says there in nothing pinching or on my nerves. Still have pain and numbness and some sort of tingly twitchy feeling in my toes. DOC says sometimes tingly is a sighn of healing. I have been floating around the other threads here (pm and addiction) im trying to taper off the oxycodone and having a rough time . doc says give my back more time and keep taking Lyrica 50 mgs 3xs a day. at least there is no reherniation made me be positive about the whole surgery thing . how long does a micro-d surgery take to recover ? I know it varys on each person .
