I had a micro discectomy 8 weeks ago and I'm not doing as good as I thought. I was doing good until my 6 weeks and then I started this burning in my back and buttocks and then at week 7 I twisted in bed wrong and now have a stinging, stabing, burning feeling in my back and buttocks. It gets worse when I sit and walk too much. I went to the doctor for my 8 week checkup and he said that I didn't re-herniate and doesn't know why I am having this pain. He said that it could be scar tissue and put me on Lyrica. He won't do an MRI because there is still inflammation and I have to wait till 12 weeks. I go back to him in 5 weeks. I have been doing PT twice a week and though that was suppose to help scar tissue. I've heard that once you get scar tissue, you will have that pain forever. I am 36 and don't think I can deal with this pain forever. Any ideas?
