I am 5 weeks post "far Lateral Hernation" l3/l4 surgery. Pre surgery incurred tremendous leg pain in thigh and shin, numb at the knee and shin. I could not lay down for weeks, sleeping in a chair. Post surgery was much better but, leg pain is constant and very uncomfortable, mainly in thigh. Leg is also very weak and numbness continues in Knee.
Anybody have thoughts on when this leg ache might subside? I am still taking pain meds to sleep but none during the day. Can walk better, can not run, and thigh is extrenle sensitive to touch, like a bad charlie horse, groin strain and thigh strain all in one!
I would appreciate any feed back.
