Lumbar disc re-herniation post-op
Hello, new to the forum here. I've searched and cannot find the answer, so maybe you can help me.
I had lumbar micro-discectomy on L5-S1 and L4-L5 about 2 1/2 weeks ago. I am being careful in my daily activities and doing everything my surgeon instructed me to do. He said certain activities, like sitting too long, can re-herniate a disc if it is still in the healing process.
Question is this...how would you know if indeed you did re-herniate a disc? Would I have new pains? Would I feel it now or much later in the future?
THank you in advance for your help.
