Hi, I am 22 years old, soon to be 23, I had a L5-S1 Microdiscectomy about a year and a half ago, since then I haven't had too much luck with recovery. After surgery, My back felt for the longest time like it just wanted to give out from underneath my feet, and my left leg feels like someone is stabbing me in the thigh and it goes into my feet. However, it's never the right side. I've been going to the Chrio. for about 9 months now, I started going six months after surgery..and it's helped me with many issues, however still have very bad leg pain, tingling/numbness in left foot... Could this be because I haven't fully recovered yet. Or could it be nerve damage??? I'm pretty worried, I am very young, and it's not looking to promising for me.
