I'm new to this board. I had L5-S1 microdiscectomy and laminectomy three days ago. Surgery was prescribed as I was having major numbness in leg, and foot, and serious pain on the calf. I also lost reflex in foot.
Since the operation, the numbness has been increasing considerably, much more than it was before. Every morning since the operation I wake up feeling my leg more numb and stiff, with decreased mobility. I can't find a good position to sleep on, and I wake up increasingly numb, tingly, with a bit of pain radiating down to the heel.
I am very scared. I don't know what I can do. Any suggestions?
