So here's my story. I'm 22 years old college student and I microdisectomy on the L5-S1 level of my spine last 6 month ago. I had sciatica for nearly like 3 month before deciding to go with surgery. Let me tell it was a major life changer in my life. I'm limited to certain activities that I can't ever do because I fear the risk that it might happen again. During these 6 months, recovery has been hard. I still get a stiffed lower back and also some weird sensation going on in my legs. Now I have this heavy leg sensation that has been going on for a week. I'm scare that I might need to go to do another surgery. It's quite depressing if you ask me. I really don't know what to do at the moment. My legs would feel heavy/weak whenever I sit down for some period of time and also standing feels sort of weird. I'm really tired of having to deal with this. I'm too young to have this. The worst part of it is this semester has started and I'm having this. I really don't want to drop this Spring semester in college knowing that I'm almost done with it. The weird part about this is I feel no pain like the tingling and numbness I had before. It was happening to my left leg when I had the tingling, numbness, and weakness. Now I just have this heavy and weak feeling in both my legs. Does anyone have any advice? I already scheduled an appointment with a neurologist, but what should I do till then? Anyone else had this heavy and weak leg feeling? What did you guys do to cope with this?
