Almost two weeks post surgery for l5s1 fusion. The initial nerve pain I had on left side is gone and incision area feels decent but now I am having horrific sciatica pain in right leg. Docs nurse told me it is from surgery having to move the muscles and nerves during surgery and should calm down and go away. Called me in gabapentin to help. I'm worried that this sciatica pain that I never had before will end up being a result from surgery and if that is the case I will be worse off than b4 surgery. Does it make sense that it is just a temporary this had anyone else experienced this?
