I am 8 weeks post op, discetomy, far lateral herniation, L3/L4. Surgery successfully elmininated severe and dabilitating hip pain. However, I have strong ache in multiple spots throughout my thigh that has not gone away. It's as tender in spots as a severe bruise. Also, I have severe weakness in thigh and through knee.
Any idea how long this will last? is this normal?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
