I need to get on here and cry to some people who understand. I just got home from my 4 week follow up with my neursurgeon. I knew that things were not right since my surgery( L5-S1 microdiscectomy). I have too much pain in my right calf and foot. the doctor thinks I may have reherniated the disc. I have no plantar reflex and he says it may never come back. I told him that I felt like I had a toe ring on my right 4th toe, he said "you do, a nerve ring". I will have another MRI done on Tuesday. I could have gotten the MRI done today but the insurance company hasn't given it the ok yet. Have any of you had these problems?
