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.
Weegee1946 here had the same surgery 6 months ago my doc told me it could take a year or more and may not help evan could get worse I beleive you signed a form stating this just befor surgery nerve damage is the risk of this type of surgery did you have fusion at that level? May not have taken ask your doc. My prayers are with you god bless
