Hey, everyone. I'm new here. I just had a PLIF on 7/31 at L5-S1. Recovery is going as expected except for one thing. I'm having this pretty bad pain in my left hamstring. Feels like nerve pain. Sharp, burning. I had never had this pain before. My first thought is that since the surgeon did a left sided laminectomy and facetectomy, the nerve root is inflamed which is causing the pain. Is this normal? Will this go away eventually?
