Back Problems board


I had a microdiscetomy on Jan 7 '08 (L5 S1). I am currently in PT as well. My question is...is it reasonable to still be complaining of pain after so many weeks? I feel like I am being such a baby but my thigh and calf are still so tight and I still have pain in my left gluteal area. I take Lyrica and Mobic in AM and PM. It gets to be like 4pm and all I want to do is lay flat will my legs up on pillows. I am afraid to call and ask for any more pain meds because I don't know if I am right to still be complaining. PS. I am the one who also had my left trochanteric bursa taken out two days later and do PT for that as well. Please help give me perspective if you have time.......thanks. B
