I had microdiscectomy on my L5-S1 disc, I also had a calcified bone spur in that area that was removed. This happened on the 21st of November so its been a little over 3 weeks. After the surgery I still had pain. It had lessened a little but it was still pretty bad. I took an oral steroide 6 day pack and felt alot better while taking that.
Before surgery I had very little numbness, just a little tingle, and no weakness. Now 3 weeks after surgery my leg has gone completely numb and is very weak. I have another MRI scheduled for the 15th to see if they missed somthing. I just dont know how or why my leg would be getting more numb now after the surgery then it ever did before.
