... There are a couple things that could be going on. One is the possibility that the disc has reherniated. Unfortunately, this can happen as the disc is vulnerable for about the first six months. Hopefully though, you are just going through a fairly normal experience post surgery. When the surgeons are closing, it is common practice to flood the area with steroids and... (19 replies)

... Does anyone know of any threads on this website that detail the do's and don'ts for MicroD recovery? The hospital didn't give me any information at all, and I want to make sure I don't screw anything up. I know about no bending, lifting or twisting.......just wanted to know if anyone had made a thread about more specific things not to do. Thanks, James (17 replies)

... Hi everyone! My husband had a micro-D yesterday, and the doctor said that everything had gone ok, but he is now in great pain in the back and weakness in the leg. I think the back pain is due to the incision and the doctor says it's normal, but I haven`t found too much information about recovery, so I wanted to ask about your experiences. Is the incision pain awful sometimes?... (4 replies)
... I just had my second microdiscectomy on March 8. Recovery is going well so far and I returned to work (desk job) on March 19. My awful leg pain is gone, which is a tremendous relief. I was up and about walking the morning following surgery, and tried to be somewhat active to keep loose, but mostly I lied in bed to give me a chance to heal. You're best bet post-surgery is to...

... Hi there, I had a microdisectomy at L4/L5 and I couldn't return to work until 3 weeks after the surgery. I was a teacher at the time. I am not sure if it is the same time frame as a disectomy. Just thought I would share my experience with you. I hope you are doing well. Angie :wave: (8 replies)
... I stumbled upon this forum and am interested in others situations. My husband had back surgery 3 months ago. He was in horrible pain before hand, so bad he could not even ride in a car or sit down at all. He has received a clean bill of health for his 3 month follow up, but the surgeon did remind us of his higher percentage to re-herniate. My husband is extremely paranoid... (15 replies)

... Hi, again, Mel. Have you gotten a second opinion yet? Has your Dr. tried you on any nerve pain pills(such as Lyrica or Gelapatin)? Everyone responds to surgery differently, and the same goes for recovery. Some people heal and respong faster than others. Always try your best to maintain a positive attitude. Listen to what the Dr. tells you to do after surgery. Take... (11 replies)
... Hi Nana Thank you for your reply. I have tried physio and anti-inflamatories and cortisone shots and they don't work. I only have one pinched nerve. Do you think I will still have pain after the surgery? How was your recovery? Would you say after I have the operation, there is a chance I will get one again? I have very little room in my canal or something for the nerves to... (11 replies)
... Hi, Mel! I had my first micro disectomy in June of 2004(only one heniated disc was operated on), the second one in November of 2005. The first one resulted in a reherniation(I have a desk job) and no relief whatsoever. The second time around, the Dr. removed both damaged discs. I still have problems with the nerves, but have been told it can take several months for the... (11 replies)
