Hello, my name is Alison, I am 23 and I just had a discectomy/lamintectomy on L5, S1, and S2 on August 6th. I am wonderig if anyone has any stories or ecxperiences with leg numbness and tingling after the surgery. My surgeon said that the nerve was badly bruised and a bit damaged and to expect to have a little numbness and tingling. I just wonder how long it lasts? And if there are any of you that will share your recovery stories and experiences with me.
