Hi - as mentioned in my previous post, I had a microdiscectomy about 3 weeks ago, and I believe I reherniated 10 days in due to a sudden aggrevating movement that resulted in sciatic pain the next day that still hasn’t gone away! Since then, my doctor has prescribed me an anti inflammatory medication for 2 weeks, meloxicam, to help with this, but the pain has just been constant (6 days of taking the medication). Only a few hours after the meloxicam (taken once a day) is when I feel the most relief but then it’s all back the following evening and next morning.
For those of you that felt post surgery sciatic pains 3 weeks out, what were they like? Were they constant? Was it reherniation? What has been your experience from being prescribed anti inflammatory medication?
Any insight or experience will be helpful. Thank you, all!
