Im one yr post op micro on l5-s1. I feel im doing very well considering how i was when i had surgery. I still have alot of foot drop wich may or may not gett better doc said to give it a yr and it has been but it could take longer. Any way I still have tingleing in back left side of left calf any one else have some of these and is there a chance of it still repairing itself. Do others have alot of pain one day and not the other. I have bouts where my knees down will hurt like 7-8 for aday and be better the next day. Doc said it could be gout but i have to be in pain when i go in for a blood test.
