I am in need of some serious help.
I was suffering from L4-L5 and L5-S1 intervertebral disc prolapse with lateral recess stenosis
So finally on 12th Aug 13, I went through the following surgeries under general anesthesia:
L4 transverse hemi-laminectomy
Left L5 hemi-laminectomy
L4-L5 and L5-S1 microdiscectomy
Foraminotomies with decompression of thecal sac and existing nerve roots
I was ok and the pain from back is slowly decreasing and I am recovering well.
But for last 4-5 days I am facing an acute pain while walking.
The pain is radiating from left foot till the knee. And it is paining in the back side of knee.
This is not happening if I walk for 2-3 minute. It starts after that. My current weight is 224 lbs.
Is there anything to worry about?
I also have less sensation in last 3 fingers of left foot, left buttock and Genitals. However this is from the day of surgery.
Please help me. My Neuro surgeon says it will become ok and suggested me Pelvic floor exercise but he does not knows about the pain in my foot that is radiating till back side of knee.
Thanks for reading the post.
