6 months post L5-S1 microdiscectomy legs "fall asleep"

I had an L5-S1 microdiscectomy with complete pain relief from 3 years of severe sciatica in December.
The only thing that worries me, is that when I sit in a hard chair, one or both of my legs feel like they
fall asleep after about 10 minutes. It gets better after I get up and walk around. My neurosurgeon
doesn't think it is from my spine, but it started happening about 2 months ago.
I am wondering if anyone else has had this happen. Otherwise I am fine, but I still worry that something
is wrong. I only had numbness and tingling before surgery in one leg but it felt different.
