My wife had surgery on 12-9-08. She had the disk removed and fused. L5/S1
Her left leg is getting stronger,(right leg is good) but the pain and burn in the left is still there. It wasn't this bad before surgery.
The Doctor said the nerve has been pressed on and its going to take time to heal. How long will this last?
Is this normal?
We go back to the Doctor on 1-29-09. What should we ask him?
