I am scheduled for an L5/S1 fusion on May 1 due to a pars defect, degenerative disc disease, large herniation of L5 as well as spinal stenosis. I've always had the pain/tingling/numbness down my left leg due to the sciatic nerve being pinched at both the exit of L5 and the entrance of S1. However, the last few days I have had issues with my right foot (mainly my toes) going numb. I've NEVER had an issue down my right leg and am wondering if the issues in my back have traveled over that way? Has anyone had a similar situation? I'm guessing I should call my neurosurgeon?
MIS TLIF L5/S1 on 5/1/13
