Back To Bed!

It's been 3 weeks since my back operation and here I am back in bed! About 5 days ago the pain in my right leg started to come back the last couple of days it's been sheer agony. Can't get comfortable, can't sleep and just feel miserable.

My doctor says this happens as the nerve is still very sensitive. I thought I was making progress but now I'm back to square one! Having pain after back surgery is so common it's even has a name "Failed Back Surgery Syndrome".

If you have back pain and are considering surgery. Consider non-invasive treatment first. There's still a lot of controversy surrounding the effectiveness of back surgery. Remember once they cut into you there's no turning back. Pardon the pun.
