Merry Christmas to all and thank you for those who answered my last question.
I have another question that I'm hoping someone can help me with. I am one week post op from an L4 L5 micro discectomy. The first couple of days were promising and the strength that I had lost in my left leg had returned, I was walking increasingly further and got up to about 3KMs by day 5. However yesterday and today the pain that I had when I first sustained the injury has now returned and is reasonably acute. Is this something that I should be worried about or is it normal? Immediately prior to the operation I was not in a lot of pain the main symptom was the lack of strength and control in my left leg. What I have been told is that the reason the pain had ceased and strength gone was that the nerve was shutting down (It had been 5 months since injury) and now the nerve is turned on again it is hurting from the scar tissue and damage it has received??? I would appreciate any help someone can give me on this as I am rather anxious about it??
