After 19 days of having a L4-5 discectomy I am still having several nerve type symptoms, I refer to them as zingers,stingers, and zappers, along with burning. I expected to have some, but they happen a lot if I'm standing or sitting uprght, or doing light bending. Once back in my recliner they seem to subside. I haven't heard a word from my surgeon since the operation, so I am wondering how normal this is. I have requested he call me, but I am still waiting. Does any of this sound familiar?
