Hello, I recently had a micro-discectomy on my L5/S1 and I’m about to be 22. I’m a month post-op and deer season has started. I got surgery a month ago so I could hopefully hunt. I hunt in a climber stand and went out for the first time Saturday(2 days ago). I can’t tell if I am just sore or I actually reherniated my disc again? Are there any ways I can tell? I really don’t want to go through it all over again. Thanks!
