I know you really can't answer my question, but on the same token maybe you can. I am 8 months post microdiscectomy L5 S1, I do not have another appt with my surgeon until April and I can't not make another one unless it is approved so I am asking. I still have a very numb tingly outside of my foot on left side. I still get shots of nerve pain in my foot leg here and there. The numbness varies from freezing to just annoying. If I do the sciatic test on the chair it just makes my foot go kind of nuts. Is this normal, to be expected or something that should be gone by now?
