L5 S1 Discectomy/ Pain again?
I had a Discectomy in May 2010 of L5 S1. My recovery was a piece of cake and I returned back to work 3 weeks after surgery without my Surgeons knowledge. I’m not the type of person to sit still so 3 weeks felt like a life time for me. I lived with back issues for 14 yrs and found success with root sleeve injections every 2 or 3 yrs, Till last April 2010.
I was gardening I was unable to stand up and started to notice bowel and bladder problems.
Still in denial that it was anything major I waited 3 weeks before I seen my doctor who had me under the knife in 2 days after seeing my MRI.
But about 3 weeks ago I tripped and twisted the wrong way or something and I’m having so much pain again. My leg is fine and no throbbing, Just Chronic soreness and I find myself having to balance myself a certain way to avoid a shock through my body, What is the likely hood of herniating the same discs? I thought that once the herniation was removed then it normally wouldn’t happen again.
