First off, I have been referring to these forums for weeks now and it has been a huge piece of calming my nerves.....no pun intended.
So I am 6 weeks post op of a bilateral microdiscectomy between L4-L5 and a Laminectomy on the left side in the same area. So far my recovery has been going well and my previous symptoms of pain up and down the leg have for the most part gone away. Now just working on PT and getting my strength back up. Over the last three days now I have been getting this slight sensation like my leg from my knee down is asleep. Its very minor and isn't overly bothersome but I can feel it. It's been kind of periodic, but at times constant. I called the doctor and they said not to be concerned about but I have been feeling very anxious about it. Any thoughts on this? Has anyone had a similar event?
