Hi there. Immediately postoperatively, you may experience postoperative pain at the incision site. Pain may linger from the herniated disc for some time. You may be prescribed pain medications. You must start walking as soon as possible. Early mobilization should speed recovery, prevent scar tissue, and help mobilize your spine. It usually takes 2-8 weeks, depending on how much physical activity they do. Physical therapy helps in return of regular activities. Usually there should be complete recover. Hope this information helps. Take care.
