Has anyone had continued nerve pain, foot numbness, upper thigh pain, and new hip pain (bursitis) following lumbar discectomy with laminoforaminotomy? I am better, but my recovery has been as fast as a slug. I never experienced significant relief directly following surgery. This week I saw a new spine expert PT (my 4th attempt in 13 months) who says that my pain and numbness may be caused by adhesion near nerve. I walked and moved as soon as I could after surgery and am now walking 2+ miles a day. I was unable to do a lot of the PT stretches several months ago due to pain. Still, if I move wrong, stand too long or sit too long, I get cramps and pain that make it tough to sleep. I had a very large extruded and fragmented disc that was strangling my nerve. I know they say the nerve may take a year or more to heal, but I am really losing patience. Even if I ask my GP for another MRI, I don't know how that will help. I cannot have more surgery. Nor can I take a lot of drugs. I am doing some new stretches (hamstring, etc.) but my big toe goes painfully numb and my hip hurts.
