I am 4.5 weeks post L4-L5 discectomy. I've been doing very well recovering. Yet over the last couple of days I've started experiencing some sharp pains in my foot accompanied by burning and tingling. The pain has moved into my ankle tonight, but I still get burning and tingling in my foot. Should I be concerned enough to call my OS or is this just the nerve doing weird things after the surgery?


  • Hiya, >:D<
    Welcome to Spine health >:D< We can only advise you on our own personal experiences :) as we are not medically trained in this field. :? based on my own experience, that could be the nerves settling down, but to be sure just give the orthpedic surgeon a call :) . It can take a while for everything to settle after this type of surgery ~X( .Hope to see you around, check out our chat room here >:D< .Keep us posted! :H
