Just had some pieces that were broken and hitting my nerves causing me to have unbearable pain in my left leg removed. I was already having lower back pain and this topped it off. I did have a shot a month prior. Went to er and had another mri showing the bulge was definitely the problem and they recommended removing it.
So now 3 weeks prior to surgery;
No pain in my leg anymore but my left foot still goes numb at times
Not lifting , bending or twisting but feel as if I could.
The scar/ area is still risen , not swollen just looks like a bump.
My concern is when I can get back to normal activity and will this happen to me again?
Very new to this and have been reading and searched a lot.
Just looking for any feedback that would be grateful.
