Just walked in my door a few hours ago. Had a severe L5 S1 herniation that resulted in sciatica numbness in my toes,calf and buttox. The pain in my leg is gone but now have a little pain in my toes almost like my toes are being pricked by needles,and of course soreness where the incision was made. The doctor told me the pain in my toes should subside and I need to see him in a week. He was a Nero surgeon and hopefully all will be well in a weeks time. It has only been a few hours. Anyone else experience this surgery.
