Quick update, and very very curious about this. I finished my prednisone pack, which helped some. But as the dosage tapered, my pain returned. Now off the prednisone pack, I woke up with pretty bad leg and buttock pain this morning. Two advil have pretty much cleared it up. Still there, but only if I stretch to feel it. If this problem were a reherniation, would it be so easily treated with just two advil? It’s been two weeks of straight sciatic pain as of today, after about 3-4 weeks of milder, and diminishing, pain following a MicroD at L5/S1. I am hoping that maybe this indicates an unusually long flare up after the nerve had been trapped for 3 months pre-op. Thank you for your opinion.
