Pain on opposite side 3 months post discetomy

Have not posted in a while but over the last few weeks I have started to get pain in my left glute / hip and recently a weird feeling in the left foot. I had a discetomy 3 months ago on the right side. I'm hoping it's a flare up or irritation of some sort, has anyone experienced this?

    I am having the same thing happening to me. 3 month post MD L5/S1 on the right. Everything was going great and in the past couple of weeks I have had weird feelings on my left leg.....tingles, cold feeling in my glute, a feeling like someone is holding the top of my foot.....my doc and PT say that it mat just be residual from the surgery, but my doc is sending me for an MRI and nerve test just to be sure.

    I will be honest and say I am trying to remain calm on the outside, but am freaking out a bit on the inside. I just don't want to end up back where I was before my surgery.
