So I had a microdiscectomy about 5 months ago and it was very successful. Even up until this point I have had very little pain. However, for the past week whenever I sit down or lay down on my back I have a numbness/ache in my big toe that slowly builds up but seems to disappear when I stand up. I am very nervous because I am a college basketball player and have a shot at the pros, foot drop is one of my worst fears. I just want to know if anyone has experienced this. Also the numbness FEELS as though it is slowly moving up my leg, I could be over thinking this though.
