I just had an anterior cervical discectomy on the 21rst august (almost a month ago)
I had a C4-C5 hernia which was compressing my spinal cord. I had difficulties walking, my legs felt week and shaky. I felt some numbness on my toes. I also had symptoms on my hands, with numbness and some pain.
I guess my legs feel already a little bit stronger and firmer. But very often I feel them very tense. Like if my muscles where very tight... And I keep feeling some tingling and the sensation of weak electric waves going through.
Could this be normal? How long will it take for my legs feel normal again?
Also, my arms feel tired and week sometimes.
I thought the symptoms where supposed to go away after surgery... I don’t know what to expect, what to consider ‘normal’.
