Hello I am 31 yr old male and I am 16 days post op of a l5 s1 microdiscectomy. I have been slowly getting more mobile. Walking a lot. Trying not to over do it. Today I was getting up (the proper way) from laying on the couch and spilled a drink! While still sitting on the edge of the couch I quickly bent forward and to the left to grab the mug. Very upset with myself. I felt a stretch in my back but no significant pop or shooting pain. Up until that I have not been bending at the waist. Now my back feels a little funny. Could I have reherniate from bending that one time or am I being a little too literal with the no bending post op?
