Happy Holidays and here is to good health in 2015! I am ~ 6 months post a microdiscectomy of an extruded herniated disc (L4/L5 region) which was causing L5 nerve root compression and very painful sciatica from butt to toes in my right leg. Surgery was performed in July 2014, and post surgery the sciatic pain is pretty much gone with mild flare-ups now and again. I have been doing PT 2-3x per week for close to 4 months now, and I just can't seem to get rid of very tight hip muscles on both sides, and depending how long I sit or stand, a bit of numbness and tingling in the groin area and around the tight hip and stomach muscles. I have been stretching these boys religiously but nothing seems to work. Would appreciate any words of advice on folks experiences with this.
Take Care and Thanks!
