post surgery recovery/introduction

Hi, I'm Anthony I'm new to the group and figured that I'd introduce myself. A little over a year ago I had a pretty bad head on car accident while at work totaling both cars. Due to the accident happening at work I've had to deal with workers compensation and things have dragged on. I wound up developing drop foot causing more than a few falls one down two stories of steps. I had a lumbar microdiscectomy about 2 weeks ago. I still have a significant amount of pain in my hip and knee and still can't move my toes on my left foot. I was wondering if this is normal and how long before anyone else who's had this has been able to get back to work? Mind you that my job is extremely physical. I'm kind of getting a bit upset that I'm not further along in my recovery than I am. Thanks for any help you may have.
