I have been having some issues for a couple years now. Numbness in the toes and groin from an l5-s1 herniation. I just had it operated on a second time because I had a huge flare up.
I am only a couple weeks post op and there weren't any complications.
Pain is almost completely gone.
I have noticed more feeling in the genitals which is a huge step. Along with other saddle areas.
However, my pins and needles in the genitals and toes have gotten quite a bit worse.
Im told with time they are supposed to get better.
Ive also seen reports of people with long standing numbness.
Has anyone actually had pins and needles go away after a surgery? Also what is the time frame?
I am young and hope i don't have to deal with this forever.
