As some of my previous topics and postings on this site i wanted to find out what some other members are experiencing after having a l5-s1 discectomy and decompression (16/4/09) I also had a caudial epidural a week before which made the symptoms worse!!!!
Specialist showed me how my herniation was huge and how it covered the spinal cord and needed immediate surgery.
Im not sure whether the epidural or the surgery has left me with numbness in the:
-rear of left leg
-numb big toe, heel and outside of left foot
I would love to hear how other people felt after there operations for discectomy and decompression and epidural etc.
thanks in advance for writing and taking your time.
