Hi everyone. A quick summary of my story: I had microdiscectomy surgery in July. It went well and a few weeks after the surgery the leg and back pain were completely gone. However, I still have numbness and tingling in my foot and leg, and calf weakness (right side). It's the weakness that bothers me the most, because I am unable to exercise like I would want to. I am physically incapable of running, for instance, because my calf just doesn't get the message to flex properly. I used to run on a treadmill for my cardio. I'm looking for an alternative to that. I'm thinking maybe an eliptical machine. Does anyone have a similar experience and can give me advice?
