Hi - after years of varying pain I finally was diagnosed with several herniated discs - I have just had the worst one operated on Feb 1st - T12/L1 - my pain is gone and I am walking a bit everyday - I would just welcome any advice or shared experiences from a similar op - how long before you felt no discomfort? My back feels tight at the moment but not painful so that's good - how long will this last?
I'm hoping to return to work next week part-time - i work in an office so sit a lot which is both good and bad- any advice - I have doctors orders not to do any housework, particular twisting movements, for at least 4weeks - so of course I will be following that instruction!!! And no lifting anything more than 5lbs for at least a month.
I'd love to hear any other experiences of a similar op.
