I had L4 & 5 laminectomy surgery on 7/12 to release the nerves. I am still having alot of pain in my legs and the outside of my calf. When I walk part of my toes go numb. I am on muscle relaxers several times a day along with lyrica but nothing seems to be helping. I have also been through 2 steriod packs. I'm at the point where I wonder if I'm worrying my doctor to death complaining. My follow up isn't until 8/18. It's actually hurts worse now then before the surgery. I still can't stand up straight or walk right much less go anywhere without pain meds.
Has or is anyone out there experiencing the same problems? Am I expecting too much?
