Would 3+ weeks post surgery MRI show anything? I'm struggling with stabbing pain and burn in my legs 1 week after the surgery. As soon as I walk for 10 minutes this burning sensation starts in my legs below the knees. I got started on prednisone and that helped for 2-3 days but now I'm back again with the same pain in both legs even though my issue was only left leg prior to surgery and I never felt this kind of pain. Evenings are the worst and I can't do anything as once the burning sensation starts, laying down doesn't help, can't sleep either.
I asked my doctor if this could be reherniation and he asked to wait 2 more weeks as MRI would only show surgical inflammation at this point. If anyone has any experience or can elaborate on it, that would be very helpful.
