It's been a while since I've posted. I think it is because I have been doing so well but I didn't want to abandon you all. My time on here was spent looking for advice on recovering from my discectomy and there are a lot of horror stories that can inadvertently discourage some. So I wanted to share a success story.
I am now at 3 months post-op, and I feel GREAT! I recently went back to work and was discharged from PT. The surgery was the best thing I have ever done, it was so worth it. I feel almost 100% normal again. I still have very minor sciatic pain in my hip/leg but it is dissipating quickly and the surgeon said it was to be expected. I feel like I got my life back.
For anybody going through the process, just hang in there, be careful, and take it easy.
Just wanted to share some positive thoughts!
