I had a micro discectomy at L5/S1 almost 7 weeks ago. At week 5 I developed swelling in both legs (was doing PT and walking 20 min 3 x a day). All tests cleared me of dangerous issues but the swelling still comes and goes and I have ‘growing pain’ type dull pains in my right leg as well as sharp stabbing in targeted areas that mainly affect me just when I lay down to sleep. Nurse suggests this is my nerve healing and waking up (which was found massively compressed in my surgery) ? Makes it very difficult to sleep. Anyone have this issue?
