When I was discharged from hospital following the surgery I did not have any pain, but it is now two weeks following surgery and I have pain and cramping in my legs. Is this normal?

It is normal that surgical pain is worse in the second week following surgery. During surgery patients can undergo varying degrees of nerve manipulation to free trapped nerves. By the two week mark the pain blockers used during the operation begin to wear off and the nerves begin to “waken”. It is possible to experience similar pain to that of pre-operation.

Consult your General Practitioner regarding pain medication for your individual circumstance.
