Scar Tissue???
Nov 28, 2004
I had a disectomy in March 2000 (L4-L5) and again on September 8. I'm about 2 1/2 months postop, but am still having pain. I can't believe how stiff and sore I get in the morning and at night. It takes about all I have just to get out of bed. Trying to get ready for work, especially putting on shoes is a struggle. When I look in the mirror my back is crooked and my right hip is higher than my left. I went for a check up with the NS on Nov. 3 and he says that it is just scar tissue causing my pain and problems. Prior to the second surgery I had tremendous sciatia pain in my right leg and was hospitalized for 5 days and then had surgery two weeks later. NS said that the sciatic nerve was pinched so bad that the first layer of the nerve was perforated. Sorry for being so long... What is your experience with scar tissue? Does it go away? What can be done for it? My NS didn't think that it was a big deal, I guess he feels that it will go away. I just can't believe how sore I am and am tired of walking around crooked and not fully upright. Any suggestions?? Thanks for any advice from this newbie.
