Hello I have read your information w/ great interest. I am 6 weeks microdiscectomy post op. My problem began in Jan 2011 by taking a fall when a desk I sat on collapsed. Long story short; Family Dr, Chiropractor, on to a Pain Dr, for three steroid spinal injections, then more chiroprator and accupuncture,,,,,hello! SURGERY TIME.

My MRI had indicated the presence of a cyst near the L4 L5 area the fall compressed the discs and the cyst was now touching the sciatic nerve. The greatest amount of pain was felt in my lower leg and ankle. There were times I could barely stand and / or walk.

So now 6 weeks post op sciatic pain is gone but stiffness and pain near the incision continues. I can stand erect again and walk w/ no pain....I am a lazy ass and I am not walking as I should be however. I was told I would be sent for therapy but this has not yet happened.

I am curious to learn what your Dr says about your situation?
