Hello I recently had a lumbar microdisectomy done on my back L4 L5. The surgery was done on Sept 5 2012. I'm now having pain in the right leg front side. I went to doc today for post follow up and told her about the pain I'm having. She explains that's not normal she says I should feel the pain on the backside of the leg from the button down. I explain yes I feel that pain also. Overall no back pain but my leg hurt around the thigh area. She prescribed me a steriod pack and say lets see how that works and reschedule for 2 weeks. Anyone got some advice.
