Leg & buttock pain after ALIF

Hello, I was reading a discussions from people from 2013 and I wonder how are they feeling now? I had an ALIF on Sep 2018, the pain in my leg has increased and in my buttock still in there since after the surgery, the Dr says it wold go away ....  my leg feels numb in the calf and the foot. The buttock hurts and the crotch every time I stand up from a seat, also I can not sit down for a long periods of time after 20 minutes, I think my Dr does not want to listen to me any more. My stomach has a sharp pain once in a while and is inflame in the left side, the insertion healed normal but still inflamed. I notice also that when I pee it feels different but my Dr says is ok as long as I pee. Sex? forget it. I tried couple of times and it let me worse.

Anybody else feel like this? is any body else better after all this symptoms?, I am depress  I can't dance, I can't do any walking or exercise. Even to work I can't do much because I have to jump constantly from my desk to the phone and my boss don't care of my pain. I can't pick up things from the floor and seems that everything goes there.

Thank you if anybody took the time to read my complains and have any hope for me :-)
