Hi there. I had my L5/S1 Discectomy on Mon this week..20th Feb..so I'm 5 days post op. On the Mon evening and Tue morning all my leg pain had gone..which was amazing after having it for 6 months pre op in my left leg. On the Tue evening I felt like a stretching pain in the back of my thigh when I straightened my left leg. I came home on Wednesday evening. Since then it's got worse. Its like a constant painful ache all over the back of my thigh. Today, my calf has felt tight aswell. When I get out of bed, it's excruciating..worse than the surgical pain. I know it's early days and I have a long road ahead.. but is this normal..? The Dr in hospital said it's probably aggravated nerve pain..! Will it ease off..? It's very frustrating when I'm trying to recover. Thankyou x Sarah
