hello! I am a 33 y/o female. I experienced a pain like never before last weekend while gardening and ended up in the ER. I couldn’t walk, sleep, eat... I was very scared.
I ended up having a microdiscectomy on 6/6. I was wondering if anyone could provide feedback on their recovery process. I feel like everything as going smoothly, the only thing I’ve noticed is I am having pain in my tailbone if I sit and then stand. Anyone else have this?
When did you return to driving, work, etc? I have an office job.
My surgeon said I won’t start PT for 6 weeks but am doing small exercises at home that were given to me.
Do people typically recover from this or am I facing a lifetime of back issues? I really hope not... thanks!
