i have an L4+L5 microdisectomy almosy 9 weeks ago. I continue to have pain in lower left leg and left foot s well as starting to get pins and needles again. I also seem to be getting cramp in both my thighs. My lower bodie remains stiff and sore. I have been doing very light activity and have only recently returned to light swimming however a 30 minute session of exersize in the pool takes 2 days to recover from. I am really worried about the leg pain as i have had to return to work due to not getting paid any more sick pay and cannot afford to live on the basic sick benefit.
I erecently went for a follow up and was adviced i may need a 2nd operation and they where concerned regarding the leg pain.
Is there anytyhing I can do myself to eliviate pain or take any vitamins etc that will assist in reducing the cramps? rigth now I do not feel well physically or mentally any help would be great.
