Hello All. I am scheduled for a Laminectomy/Discectomy on 8/12. This is my second one. Tonight on the way home my right ankle got a pain in it and I had to stop walking several times. After resting for a while, I got up and my ankle did it again. It is more on the top of my ankle. My back has been throbbing for the last few hours but only about a 2 or 3. My question- could my ankle be from my herniation? Perhaps it is a coincidence? My leg is fine, it is just the ankle which is now aching some now.
