Hi all new to the site and just after some feedback from you all.
I had a disc replacement at L5/S1 6 weeks ago. Ive had very little direction or advice from the consultant after I went back after 3 weeks for a check up.
My back pain seems to be better than before the op but at about 3 weeks I started with numbness, tingling and pain in my left leg and foot, which I never had before. It really worried me but the consultant said it may have been caused by the nerves stretching after the op??
Just wondered if anyone else had experienced the same thing and if so how long did it last?
Thanks for any advice in advance
