I am a new member. I recently had a microdiscectomy on my L5 S1 on 11/20/12 and I still have the burning pain in my leg when I sit. I also have numbness and weakness in my left food ( I did not have this before the surgery). I talked with my Dr. and he said that this was due to the nerves acting up due to the surgery and that it will get less inflamed as time passes. Has anyone else have this happen? I'm worried that the surgery did not work. I cannot deal with it if it didn't. This was my last option because ESI and PT did not work. I'm losing hope. Maybe if someone had it happen to them and it resolved over time, then this would give me some hope.
