post op recovery plan

as per my first post on the forum, since surgery on the 4th january I have had continual tingling of the left side of the left foot coming from S1 nerve irritation, I did not have this prior to surgery.

My surgeon just wants to put me on meds
MY RMT thinks its muscle tightness
My osteopath I was seeing thinked it was related to large intensitine inflammation (HUH?)

So as you can see I have tried vaious things to resolve this, but maybe I am trying to overcome something that is not possible to rid myself of.

I had a miscrodisectomy for an trapped S1 nerve root and narrowing of the spinal canal, pre surgery I could barely walk, the operation cured this and my post op MRI showed a small persitant left central herniation and "possibly" a small residual fragment plus scar tissue, the observation was none of this was producing mechanical effects of the nrve root.

My question is those that have been through this does it ever go away for them? And what treatment have people found best?
